It was suggested to me by one of my friends and I read it and lived it to.  It's about Sophie, an only child who has to live with Quentin because her mom has decided to move in with his father. They are very different from each other.  Quentin seems a bum without ambition. Sophie is very good in school. She will soon discover that he is different but not for the reasons she dreams up.  Read p. 64 at the bottom of the page where Sophie discovers what Quentin really does. The story is about prejudice, accepting being different, reconstituted families, love.  (Louise gagne <>)
