The Sophie Washington series keeps going strong with book #10. If you’re new to the series, check out the covers here. It’s quite an impressive accomplishment to keep Sophie and the diverse cast of characters interesting and fresh with each new story.
In MY BFF, Sophie is a sixth grader. She lives with her parents and an annoying little brother (at least in her eyes). The story centers on her deteriorating relationship with best friend Chloe. They seem more like former best friends. Full of hurt feelings and misunderstandings, young readers will likely see themselves in one of the characters.
Here’s the official Synopsis:
Sophie and Chloe have been best friends since they met in kindergarten. They get along like chips and salsa and do everything together from playing tennis to cheering on the school cheer squad. Lately, Chloe’s been leaving Sophie out, and she doesn’t know why. Sophie does everything she can to make her best friend happy, but it’s not working. Then Chloe asks Sophie to fib to a teacher to help her out and she learns the true meaning of friendship.
The 21 chapters are short and at just 94 pages—perfect for a read-aloud. MY BFF isn’t dependent on reading the others first, but it’s a pretty good bet you’ll be hooked and not want to miss a single chapter. Engaging and spot on in the depiction of this age group, kids might also earn a thing or two about being a good friend.
