What my mother doesn't know, by Sonya Sones
What a sweet and darling book. At just under 19,000 words this story, told in verse, never feels slight.
Sophie tells us about her life as a ninth-grader. We observe as she looks for love, falls in and out of it, and has near-misses with things that aren't love at all.
We watch as she grows into herself a little, starts to see herself as an individual instead of just the product of her friends or family.
I enjoyed it-- and I will read more from Sonya Sones.
I recommend this book.
