Sophie's World

Review
Sophie's World is a realistic fiction novel, the first in a six book series. Sophie LaCroix is in 6th grade and has an avid imagination. This book is very heart felt and funny. It teaches valueable lessons on life. If you want a good read about a young Christian girl who is making her way through middle school, read this book!
