Description

Shortlisted for the Costa Children’s Book Award. A remarkable tale of confusion and betrayal – and a very special girl called Sophie. ‘Some stories are hard to tell. Even to your very best friend. And some words are hard to get out of your mouth. Because they spell out secrets that are too huge to be spoken out loud. But if you bottle them up you might burst. So here’s my story. Told the only way I dare tell it.’ Sophie Nieuwenleven is sort of English and sort of Belgian. Sophie and her family came to live in Belgium when she was only four or five years old but she’s fourteen now and has never been quite sure why they left England in the first place. Then one day Sophie makes a startling discovery. Finally Sophie can unlock the mystery of who she really is. This is a story about identity and confusion – and feeling so utterly freaked out that you just can’t put it into words. But it’s also about hope. And the belief that somehow everything will work out OK. SOPHIE SOMEONE is a tale of well-intentioned but stupid parenting shock acceptance and ultimately forgiveness written in a brave memorable and unique language all of its own.
