I think the theme is that Vinnie friend were Flip Flops that reminds me of the title.

To always be a good friend and not to
judged people how they look. And I know that because in the book Vinnie sees this girl and they call her flip flop girl and know body wanted to play with her and they just stud there and laugh at her instead of Vinnie and thats what good friends do.

Ps. Thanks yall

The theme of Flip-Flop Girl is being treated unfairly because nobody cares what Vinnie thinks or does, they only go to Mason. For example, when their father died and Mason stopped talking their mother only went to him even when they saw Vinnie hurt.

I think the theme is caring because a lot of people in this book care for some one

EX: the grandmother cares for Mason

EX: Lupe cares for her pumpkin

EX: Vinnie cares for her dad

I think the theme is that Vinnie finds a mysterious Flip Flop girl to ignore the past.

To always be somebody's friend just because everyone laugh at her that doesn't mean nothing because you never know when you might need a friend.So the theme of flip flop girl is being treated unfairly because no one cares what Vinnie thinks.

Also It can be not to make front of people because the same thing can happen to you. Because in the story know body liked her she was dirty but the only person that would play with her and care for her was Vinnie and to me I think thats what the theme is

Ps. I hope you like it and my class mates keep up the good work.

I think the theme of Flip Flop Girl is don't judge a book by his cover. Because no one plays with her because I think they think she's weird, but besides the way she dressed. When Vinnie meets her she didn't think she was weird she was a nice person. So don't judge a book by it's cover. My other theme is death because she lost her father and. She's always talking about what her father would say she really misses her father. Thats why her brother does not talk or hardly eat. They must be really sad about her fathers death.

The theme of Flip-Flop Girl is sadness, I think it is sadness because her father died. I also think that the theme is fitting in. In school it is is hard for her to fit in. No one really likes Vinnie, for an Example Heather, Heather is a great example, because Mr.Clayton told Heather to be nice to Vinnie and show here around and watch out for her but shes not. She is making up excuses so she does not have to do watch out for her.

Well, the theme I believe is death and friendship, I think death is a theme because in flip flop girl her father dies. Also, friendship because she makes friends Vinnie and Mason.

Craig Wilder said...

I think the theme for FLIP FLOP GIRL is shyness.I think that because when Vinnie came to a new school she was shy to make friends and when she saw the flip flop girl she was shy to talk to her.The flip flop girl is shy as well she pretenses to play with some one when she really is lonely.

The theme for Flip Flop girl is that her dad died so they had to move. Her brother could not talk or eat. Vinnie had to go to a different school. There she saw Lupe. Lupe live on a pumpkins garden with her family.I think they will be friends

The main idea of flip-flop girls is that no one likes her because she is dirty and has to wear hand-me-downs. Lupe is not dirty because she has no bathe but because she has to work. Lupe does not have a very good family because her family has died.
