Gr 4-7–Sincerely is two lovely books in one. Sixth-graders Sophie and Katie become pen pals through a school program. Sophie lives in New York City, while Katie lives in California. In Sincerely, Sophie, the epistolary friendship commences. Sophie is going through a rough time, as her parents are divorcing and her best friend has deserted her for a group of more popular girls. In Sincerely, Katie, Katie plans a big fundraiser for earthquake victims in Mexico. Her letters cover this event and her family problems. Furthermore, she struggles as she watches her best friend, Jake, pay more attention to another girl. It is this bi-coastal friendship that helps each girl through stressful times. The novel puts a positive spin on tough situations, illustrating that good things can, and often do, happen in the midst of adversity.Sarah K. Allen, Elko Middle School, Sandston, VA
