From School Library Journal
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

"Sincerely, Sophie" is about a girl named Sophie dealing with her friend who is suddenly too cool to hang out with her; her parents constantly fighting; and the daily struggles of sharing a room with her little sister. In the story, Sophie is given an assignment to write a letter to a pen pal named Katie. At first, she thought this assignment would be boring, but she soon found out just how good a listener a pen pal can be.
"Sincerely, Katie" is about a girl named Katie who is involved in organizing a fundraiser to help victims of an earthquake; dealing with possibly losing her best friend, Jake, to another girl; and, also dealing with her parents favoring her older sister, Julie, over her. She too receives an assignment from her teacher to write a letter to a pen pal. Like Sophie, she thinks this assignment will be boring, but soon finds out that this is not the case. Sophie turns out to be a good listener for Katie too.
This is definitely a must read for any girl who can relate! Enjoy! :)
Sheinmel uses Sophie and Katie in an interesting way, presenting one story through two sets of eyes. Sophie's story is first, and the reader laughs and cries with her as she loses her best friend, experiences her parent's divorce, and tries to find her own way. Sophie's story really focuses on her school and home life. Her only friend seems to be in a pen pal all the way across the country, Katie.
Katie's story is different from Sophie's - hers is centered on her home life and the trouble she experiences with her mother.
Both are adorable, likable characters the reader will enjoy.
