    1 thought on “Double Dutch

    1. Another wholesome book that is probably a 5 star book for girls age 11-15, 3 stars for H.S. girls, and likely a 2 star book for boys. It's a clever little story about 8th graders, each of whom has an important secret he/she keeps to himself/herself out of fear of embarrassment and not fitting in with the theme of don't judge someone unless you really know them.

    2. The book I read is called Double Dutch by Sharon M. Draper. For my opinion I really liked this book. This book is about a girl name Delia she loves Double Dutch and she is really good at it. She is so good that her team has a chance to win in the World Double Dutch Championship. Delia is worried about passing the schools state exam because Delia has been in Double Dutch for a lot of time to make a secret that could affect her place on the team. Delia has a best friend name Randy he also has a se [...]

    3. I really liked this book because you never knew what was going to happen next. The tone of this book was very suspenseful. Many things happened throughout the story that I would have never expected to happen. I enjoy reading books like this because I get really caught up in the story. It's almost like an adventure. Another reason why I liked this book was because I learned many things from this book about friendship. I learned that you should not keep secrets because only bad things will result [...]

    4. I decided to read this book becuase I read the blurb and it just got me. What impressed me was how at one point in the story, it got electroni-cy. It was like a script and i can just imagine a conversation. Thias book taught me to nt keep BIG things t myself and always tell it to an adult you can trust becuase if you dont, it will come back and hurt you. Dalia had dyslexia. She didnt want anyone to know, not even her mom or her closest of friends. Dalia is also in the Double dutch team, however [...]

    5. This was a pretty good book about a girl named Delia and a boy named Randy, as well as some of their classmates. They are all a group of close eighth grade friends who usually discuss pretty normal, everyday teenage problems. But on the inside, many of them are hiding secrets, especially Randy and Delia. There are two twin boys, Tabu and Titan Tolliver, who act menacing and mean at their school. They make lots of empty threats, scaring many of the students and even a few teachers. No one knows i [...]

    6. I'm close to finish reading this book and I enjoy this book a lot because I like how unique the characters are. There are about 5 important characters in the book so you will figure out their personality and other stuff. This book is about a Delia who loves double dutch tries to compete at World Double Dutch Championship but thats not the only thing that's written in the book. Importantly she and one of her friend have big secret to hide from everyone and that might be more interesting than her [...]

    7. As an eighth grader, Delia is totally immersed in the upcoming Double Dutch (jump roping) competition, and all seems to be going well until she finds that, if she doesn’t pass the upcoming achievement exams, she will be barred from competing. She would not only let herself down, but her teammates as well—and everyone would learn her secret—that she could not read. What Delia doesn’t know is that she’s not the only one with a secret. How did Delia fake her way through reading, at school [...]

    8. SPOILER ALERT!!!By: Maci BuffkinThe young adult novel Double Dutch, by Sharon M. Draper you learn that everyone has a secret, even in the eighth grade! All of the characters in this book have a secret. The story takes place in Cincinnati Ohio and is about friendships, and is also about a group of teenagers who are dealing with, going through hard times, or struggling with things in their lives that friends, family, and teachers have no idea about. These issues cause them to live in fear while e [...]

    9. Warning Spoiler Alert!The book Double Dutch was written by Sharon M. Draper. This book was a realistic fiction. This book was about two twins, also a young girl and boy, who’s all had their secrets come out. This book was about not judging a book by its cover and trust. In the beginning Delia, Yolanda, and 2 other girls were preparing for their greatest and hardest double dutch competition. Yolanda discovered Delias biggest secret: She can’t read. This situation causes many problems for Deli [...]

    10. WARNING… SPOILER ALERT!!!!!!The book “Double Dutch” by Sharon M. Draper is a realistic fiction book. This book was about never doubting yourself. In the beginning of this book, you will find out that Delia can not read and nobody else knows. Her friend Randy also has a secret; his dad is a long distance truck driver and Randy is running out of money and going broke so through the book he struggles to find ways to get his needs. Randy, Delia, and a few other friends later participate in a d [...]

    11. I chose to read this because my eighth grade girls were assigned this novel as summer reading and I wanted to keep pace with them. The plot developed by Draper is very well crafted. Her characters are three dimensional and realistic, with real flaws and quirks. They are also among some of the most believable portrayals of young adults I have seen in recent memory. I especially liked the way she handled the twins in the narrative. The way she ended up taking the storyline was really unconventiona [...]

    12. I think that this book had its engaging moments, but overall it was slow and uneventful. This book deserved three stars because I found it hard to get into, and I couldn't relate to any of the characters. The story took place in Ohio. However, I did enjoy how this book made two unlikely people become friends. The author, Sharon Draper, shared two very different peoples perspectives on the world and then in the end, made these two collide and become friends. The story was sad at parts as well. Ra [...]

    13. Delia is an eighth grader who loves Double Dutch and her friends more than anything. She struggles in school because she can't read, but is successful at faking it through school. Her friend Randy is struggling to survive because his dad left on a trick driving job and hasn't come back for a couple months. Add in a set of twins that everyone is afraid of, the Double Dutch World Championship, and a tornado, and this book is full of drama and overcoming obstacles.This book was a quick read once I [...]

    14. Delia and Randy have a secret. Delia can't read, and Randy's father has been missing for six weeks. I can relate. To adults, it seems silly for young teens to keep such secrets from other adults, but from the perspective of the teen, it's a different story. They're afraid of what others will think, so it's easier to say nothing. When I was in fifth grade I had a secret. I discovered it after my brother began struggling with the same problem: near-sightedness. To me, being unable to see was less [...]

    15. Might make a good read-a-loud for 5-7th grades -Secrets held and using Double Dutch as the medium to tell the story of - not being able to read - and a dad disappearing on you for two 8th grader friends is good food for thoughtSharon M Draper has the magic touch with empathy and diversity for young readers.

    16. This book kept my interest more than I expected it to. The depiction of the characters seemed fairly realistic and kept me wanting to learn more of their stories.

    17. Double Dutch is about 3 good friends in middle school. They are all part of the Double Dutch team at their school and hope to win the championship which will be held in their hometown of Cincinnati. Delia one of the main characters is probably the best jumper on team but she has a secret she has been hiding from everyone including her parents and her best friend. She can't read. She has covered this up by memorizing lectures and class room discussions and offering to do posters and projects inst [...]

    18. Sharon M. Draper wrote the book Double Dutch. She did an amazing job writing this book. This story is taken place mostly in the gym where the jumpers have their practice and where they have their competitions or at their school where the drama hits. There are a lot of characters and they all are interesting but the main characters are Delia, Yolanda, Randy and the Tolliver twins. The twins always make something seem the opposite from what it actually is. Randy’s dad is missing and has been mis [...]

She is so good that her team has a chance to win in the World Double Dutch Championship.

    20. (2002) This book would be useful for grades 3rd and up, and is a great way to discuss school issues and family issues. It prods readers to reflect on their own assumptions, just as the characters must do in the book. Even though the two main characters are dealing with life-hindering problems, Sharon Draper leaves the story at a satisfying ending.

    21. This novel deals with a lot of dilemas that students face todayDelia's dilemma is she don't know how to read. She is considered a smart student but no one know she doesn't know how to read. She gets by in her classes by doing projects. She does well with Mathematics and she has lots of friends but no one know she doesn't know how to read. She uses double dutch as her disguise to get away from her problem but when she is faced with the standardized mandatory test, she has to figure out how to ska [...]

    22. Double Dutch was a good book. One of the things I liked best about it was the aspect of double dutch. It took me back to my childhood for sure because that is all myself and my girlfriends played during the summer and after school when the weather was nice. It brought back pleasant memories for me and I love when a book does that. Similar to me, the main character's name begins with a D, Delia. She plays competitive jump rope but has a secret that no one knows about. This is my other issue - how [...]

    23. Delia is a part of the American Double Dutch league. For her and many of her teammates, double dutch is a way to escape the world and their problems-including the fact that she can't read. As she struggles to finish eighth grade without her secret being uncovered, Delia's ingenuity is capping off as her inability to read runs her straight into a wall. Will she be able to overcome her fear of judgement and ask for help?This book was not one of my favorites. I've been a competitor in USA jumprope [...]

    24. This was one of the most touching books i have ever read. I especially felt this way because my brother can read, just really has a problem doing it. I felt like Delia was like my brother. I also loved this book because I could really imagine the characters Sharon M. Draper was describing. Randy was a little plump, but a very down to earth and soft touching charadter at the heart. Delia was a caring girl, who had some problems really just letting all out, and going for it. Sharon M. Draper never [...]

    25. The book Double Dutch by Sharon Draper was an excellent book. The book contained many morals and lessons that made teenagers think about the choices that they make. One storyline of the book centers on the fact that the main character Delia cannot read. No one knows that she cannot read and she is in eighth grade. She has been able to scam the system for eight years of school. Delia’s best friend discovers she cannot read. She asks Delia "how did you make it through all of these grades without [...]

    26.
