iTwixie’s Tween Girl Book Club is the only online book club in the WORLD just for tweens.

To be part of this book club, start reading the book and answer the questions below! Every answer counts as an entry. You can WIN a free year of Twixing;) The winner will be chosen by a random drawing and will be announced next Wednesday, February 6.


The main character in Inside Out and Back Again by Thanhha Lai is Kim Ha. In some countries like Vietnam, people give their last name first. So the main character’s name is Ha.


1. Ha celebrates her birthday twice every year! Do you have any special way you celebrate your birthday?

2. In the story, Ha describes someone as crying “tears of an ugly fish.” What do you think that might mean?

3. This story starts in Saigon, Vietnam. Where is that?


 Inside Out and Back Again by Thanhha Lai

 Inside Out And Back Again

For all the ten years of her life, Ha has only known Saigon: the thrills of its markets, the joy of its traditions, the warmth of her friends close by, and the beauty of her very own papaya tree. But now the Vietnam War has reached her home. Ha and her family are forced to flee as Saigon falls, and they board a ship headed toward hope.

Every Wednesday you get a chance to win prizes. AND on February 20, we’ll have a cool, ALL DAY Book Club Party!

Ok, girlie, get reading! iTwixie’s Tween Girl Book Club ROCKS!
