"Girls undergoing the same growing-up trials will be happy to have Sophie make them laugh."--Kirkus Reviews "A lively chapter book full of humor, believable family dynamics, and characters who think and talk like real people. . . . Greene explores her themes of identity, ambivalence about growing up, and friendship with an unusual naturalness and depth, yet the themes never trump story or character."--The Horn Book, starred review"[Readers will] want to unwrap this gem of a story and savor the delicious conclusions."--School Library Journal
