Read from July 8th- July 13th What My Mother Doesn’t know… five words that could make or break a relationship between mother and daughter, but this book isn’t all about a mother and daughter’s relationship. This is a story about a girl and her first loves and the struggle as a popular high school girl. Her name is Sophie Stein. Everyone thinks Sophie’s life is easy and care free because she is beautiful and popular, but that’s not true. Her family consists of her mom and dad who constantly fight and her dad is never there because he is at “work”. No matter who Sophie goes out with it never works. All she wants is a good guy who will treat her well, but let’s face it that’s easier said than done. Sophie really reminds me of Beth from the movie I Love You Beth Cooper. They both seem to have it together, but their lives are far from it. This book is a great realistic fiction book because the heart break and just what Sophie is going through happens in so many lives everyday. This book taught me so much through Sophie’s feelings and the theme of the book which was, love is a strong word and a strong feeling and you need to be sure your ready for it. Also that opening up to somebody isn’t that bad. It can really help you with your struggles in life. I highly recommend this to teenage girls who like reading about love, friends, and the struggle to make things work in a world where it isn’t always easy. I mean it’s just love right?
