Overview

After shedding 30 pounds of baby fat, Sophie Sinora has grown into a pretty, but insecure, teen in bloom. To make her life more complicated, Sophie can sometimes read minds.

Sophie's BFFs, AJ and Krysta, are also 'gifted' with paranormal abilities. Keeping their gifts secret proves difficult, as their powers are strengthening, making them feel more and more like freaks.

When Sophie falls for Jacob, she hopes he'll ask her out to the Freshman Formal. But when she's forced to cheat and lie for him, she wonders how far she'll have to go to make him like her. Add to her growing list of problems - her teacher's suicidal thoughts, a locker bully who wants to kick her butt, the hot school flirt who won't stop teasing her, her pregnant sister who boots Sophie out of her room, and the growing tension between Sophie and her best friends.

Sophie's got issues. Hopefully, she can fix them in time to save her teacher's life and her social life.

Editorial Reviews

Diana Coyle
I absolutely adored reading this story by Ms. West. Her voice is extremely unique and fresh. She immediately transported me into the story from the very first sentence. I felt as if I was another character watching and interacting with Sophie and all the other characters.

Sophie and her two best friends have been blessed with supernatural powers. Sophie has the ability to read minds and it's growing stronger every day. While she's happy that she has her best friends to confide in, lately there's tension in the group.

Sophie likes Jacob, whom her friends don't like. A.J. isn't afraid to speak her mind, even if those comments are negative.

While Sophie's dealing with her crush, her pregnant sister moves back home with her loser boyfriend, and sh

An interesting read. I started reading thinking that the focal point of the book was the paranormal activities of the three girls. Wrong! While a part of the story, the focal point of the book is more about the good, bad and ugly aspects of our high school years. It also deals a lot with self-image and how we perceive others. A great read particularly for young adults.

&quot;Sophie's Secret&quot; is a fun book to read! I enjoyed getting to know the characters. Even with the added element of Sophie's special power (reading thoughts), I think most of us can relate to Sophie's wish to just fit in. Also, Tara raises some good points along the way about bullying, standing up for yourself, and taking control of troublesome situations than can occur in a young girl's life. This would be an excellent book to read with your teen (although I am 31 and loved it)!
