  2. I don t typically read books for middle grades, but the title and cover of this one really caught my eye It was longer than I expected, but because it is, it shows Karma s story over her first year of sixth grade and middle school She has started growing a mustache yay puberty, but her family is of a religious faith that doesn t cut hair, which complicates an already difficult and awkward situation Her story is a very realistic depiction of navigating bullies, names, friendship, religious belief [...]


  3. Somewhere between our last day at elementary school and the middle of summer, an invisible rulebook had been wedged between us Sara had read the book, and somehow I was supposed to guess what was inside So much to love about this book the cover for starters, but also the story that s waiting inside Karma is about to start middle school She s sprouted seventeen hairs above her upper lip Her best friend, Sara, has changed so much that only flickers of her fifth grade self remain In fact, everythin [...]

Oh, Karma You got me Half Methodist, half Sikh, I loved learning about your blended self My kids are 1 4 Indian their dad being the Kiran figure in our story and I will definitely be sharing this story with them The author really nails the discomfort of those awkward pre teen years, with so much to navigate in terms of self and others I loved how the mc had to rely on her true self to find her way.

  7. This book perfectly encapsulates what it feels like to be in sixth grade It is a time of discovering your own voice and how to use it and that is what we see with Karma Khullar Karma is half Sikh and half Methodist Her home life is changing as her father is a stay at home dad and her mother works full time teaching at the local university Karma s older brother is a brooding teenager and so Karma takes it upon herself to be a good daughter and not complain about the challenges in her own life nam [...]


  8. I was lucky enough to read a prerelease version of this story and I seriously could not put it down Karma is so relatable and sweet this really is one of my favorite recent MGs.


  9. Karma Khullar s Mustache was such a fun read Just as middle school is about to begin Karma finds seventeen hairs growing on her upper lip and she loses her best friend As she deals with puberty, fashion choices, bullying, religion, and change, Karma grows a lot She manages to remain just as endearing and lifelike as she is on the very first page, which made us love her even This was a completely rewarding book to read, reminiscent of Are You There God It s Me, Margaret, but with a unique and fr [...]


  10. Karma Khullar s Mustache is a sweet look at the perfectly normal anxieties of going to middle school and going through puberty Friends, rivalry, and family are all tackled with the wonderful addition of a main character who is half Methodist and half Sikh.Kids and adults alike will find something to relate to in this book We ve all undergone the painful way friendships, and bodies, evolve and change.The book blurb says in the style of Judy Blume and I feel like that author would approve of this [...]


  11. As an Indian American, I have been excited about this book since I had first heard about it last year It did not disappoint This was a fun, touching story and I loved Karma Khullar Her middle school experience was so relatable I m sure many readers will be able to identify with it and be comforted in the fact that they are not alone in dealing with the changes middle school has to offer.


  12. I didn t want to read a book about a middle school girl who grows a mustache it didn t sound like a book I d be interested in I was so wrong.I loved Karma I loved and hated her friend, Sara I loved and hated the new student at her school, Lacy I loved Karma s parents, who were flawed enough to be real but who were also amazing enough to want to emulate I loved the plot, friendships awry and refurbished and anew during those difficult early adolescent years Loved, loved, loved.


  13. this is a book that doesn t really pack any surprises and doesn t go very deep into questions it raises about friendship, bullying, puberty, gender and body image, identity, food and identity, loss, converging and conflicting cultural locations and experiencesBut Karma is plucky and admirable and the specificities of her family life are relatively complex and drawn with an appreciation of the complex love in this novel isn t perfect, but it s still meaningful and powerful and that makes it enjoy [...]


  14. Speaking as both a hairy girl and a girl who experienced plenty of upper elementary aged friend drama, I can tell you that this book is pitch perfect Karma is just so damn resilient She has the kind of strength I wish I d had Though honestly, it would ve helped enough just to have this book to read at the time.


  15. I loved this novel about middle school life, friendship, religion, culture, and body hair image issues I will be adding a copy to my classroom library.


  16. E ARC from Edelweiss Above the TreelineKarma and Sara have been friends for years, but as the two are making plans for their sixth grade year, Karma starts to be concerned that Sara is much interested in clothes, make up and boys To make matters worse, a new girl moves into the house across the street from Sara Lacey is pretty, from California, and offers Karma beauty tips about dealing with the beginnings of a mustache on her upper lip When they are all hanging out at the pool, Lacey is even m [...]


  17. This is a beautifully written book The author evocatively captures so many universals about being 11 and starting middle school I had to put the book down a few times and remind myself that I wasn t in middle school again This book will be a great comfort to young people who are themselves going through the trials of changing bodies, changing friendships, and just changing.


  18. KARMA KHULLAR S MUSTACHE is a profound middle grade story about friendship and self acceptance It s also a perfect example of how a book can be quiet and still absolutely gripping I was rooting for Karma who is smart and sensitive, kind and anxious right from the very first page The characters are all expertly drawn especially the members of Karma s family and I loved the details about Sikhism and Punjabi culture that were sprinkled in An insightful, touching read that I will be recommending to [...]


  19. As soon as I heard about KARMA KHULLAR S MUSTACHE, I knew I had to read it Growing up, I too had a mustache also a unibrow and chin hairs and was very self conscious about it I wish SO badly I had this book then Kristi Wientge does such a great job describing the struggle of growing up and coping with change, as well as showing a healthy example of how to respond to change Karma is not only a wonderfully likeable, relatable character, but a great model of how to respond to unlikeable people We a [...]


  20. What an absolutely wonderful book I loved this story of a pre teen girl finding 17 hairs on her lip just before school starts Her journey takes her through managing friendships to feelings of isolation to adjusting to new family dynamics to facing questions of fate vs choice Karma has a lot going on, and she finds the courage, strength, and love to manage it all as well as anyone I can t wait to give this to my daughter in a few years.



  21. I really enjoyed this middle grade novel about Karma as she struggles to find her way in middle school when her BFF finds a new friend who notices the growth of hair on her upper lip I was so frustrated with the way these kids treated Karma and the lack of others to stand up to the mean comments and names she endured The story hits a bit too close to home, perhaps I liked that Karma s family is going through some changes that would be relatable for my students dad has lost his job and mom is wor [...]


  22. 3.5 out of 5 Content had a lot of pieces I was looking for body image, friendship, the importance of making kind choices, ethnicity identity, and a main character who is Sikh Yes yes yes That being said I really did think the writing could be much tighter, and with editing this book could go from good to something great I think I m at 3 stars because I wanted to love this book badly and just really wish it was the great version For now, I know there are humans in this intended audience who will [...]


  23. Karma Khullar s Mustache was a good book It was sad, funny, angry, and happy all in one Karma faced lots of challenges her best friend totally changed over the summer, she s grown a mustache, her food is weird to everyone else at school, and her new friend is mad at her for a short period of time Karma seems to have a pretty tough life for a few days, but everything is sorted out in the end This was a quick, funny, and entertaining book.


  24. I was expecting a typical middle grade book where two best friends get split apart by the new girl in town But this book touched on so much Karma took us through a journey of dealing with 17 hairs on her lip right when she s starting middle school There are issues about family, bullying, friendship, and self esteem all wrapped up in karma s ethnicity I loved learning tidbits about her culture as it molded and influenced her decisions while she dealt with her facial hair crisis.


  25. When you re half Sikh and your name is Karma, you start to wonder if the 17 hairs you ve grown on your upper lip is karma kicking you in the teeth right before the start of middle school.


  26. Middle school can be such a cruel and relentless experience For Karma, it s even worse because she has a mustache I loved this book and how it perfectly relays the struggle that is middle school friendships and insecurities.



  27. See of my reviews on The YA Kitten My copy was an ARC I got from the publisher for review as a reviewer for YA Books Central.They are truths universally acknowledged that middle school is terrible and body hair is annoying I don t actually have much of an issue with body hair, luckily Armpit hair is so nonexistent it s only a twice a year thing and my legs get taken care of every three months just so I don t feel like bugs are constantly crawling on me I use hair removal lotion due to the traum [...]
