About this product
- DescriptionSome 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 thatare 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 w 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. 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.
