  • Sophie is an engaging protagonist who’s enthusiastic and irrepressible: “Some kids laughed at how Sophie’s collages had things sticking out, but she liked them that way. They were interesting.”
  • An authentic story about growing up. Stephanie Greene convincingly writes about Sophie’s school and family life. The many humorous exchanges between Hartley family members are great fun to read.
  • Greene presents several different, relatable views on learning about puberty—from Sophie’s disinterest to her friend Alice’s curiosity.
  • Fans of the series will be happy to be reunited with Sophie, while newcomers will not need knowledge of the previous books to become engrossed in this one.
