Sophie Someone by Hayley - ADVISABLE

Long, Hayley Sophie Someone, 258 pages. Candlewick Press, 2017. $17. Language: G (2 swears,0 F); Mature Content: G; Violence: G.

Sophie, 14, grew up in Belgium but has vague memories of leaving England. Comet, her best friend, is from the Democratic Republic of Congo. Sophie knows her family isn't normal her mom never leaves the house, her dad lied to her, and her brother well he's a little cuckoo. She knows her family has secrets - every family does, but when she makes a startling discovery her world gets a whole lot crazier. She ends up going 333 miles away without her parents permission; in fact they didn't even know. Sophie Someone is about trust, betrayal, friendship and hope for a better brighter future.

Sophie Someone takes a few pages to really get into but after that it's wonderful. I recommend this book to people who won't give up on a book cause it's kinda hard to get into. The author mixes some of the words -  like face is fax mouth is mush. Sophie Someone is one of my new favorite books.
