I have read all of Patrick Hodges books and in each one, including Sophie's Different, he touches on the same issues from different perspectives. Children hurt, they are in pain, they are bullied. We watched in Ethan's secret as he dealt with family issues, and in Joshua's island as he survived bullying to an extreme. I love the author's ability to show the things that are hard to look at through the eyes of children. We come to care about the characters, identify with them and hurt for them.
The author is skilled at shaking us awake to the hard reality that life is not so simple. That our children are not safe when they go to school, and even if they never experience a shooting, they will have to survive the multitude of pitfalls that their peers throw out.
This is the third in an impactful series that I feel teachers should read, just to be more aware of the signs children may be exhibiting in their classrooms. Aside from teachers, this is a series many children will identify with. Sadly, too many.
Well done Mr. Hodges.
Sophie and Ayden both struggle with the typical early-teen issues, including bullying and fitting in somewhere.
Ayden likes to consider himself "invisaboy" as he snoops on other people's conversations.
Sophie is the younger sister of Eve (one of the two main characters from the first book in the series), and she finds herself in a love triangle aimed at making a popular girl jealous.
They both deal with bullying, as do the kids in the two previous novels in this series.
As always, Hodges' characters are so genuine as middle school kids, it's hard to believe the author is not a kid himself.
The book is speckled with the occasional appearance of beloved characters from earlier stories. At one point, we are led to feel real sympathy for an infamous bully from his first book. And another unexpected character pops in to tie the whole story together.
Sophie is, indeed, different. But she finds her way beautifully thanks to this author's skilled pen.
Although this book is intended for a young adult audience, this middle-aged mom thoroughly enjoyed it!
Five stars for this installment of the James Madison series!
Sophie’s Different follows on from 'Joshua’s Island' and 'Ethan’s Secret', with a group of linked characters, providing neat and satisfying story overlaps and connections. 'Sophie’s Different' has elements of romance and mystery while exploring a diversity of themes such as bullying, drugs, relationships, individuality and friendship. As a collection the three book series would provide an excellent educational resource for parents and schools wanting to help young people through the trials and tribulations of adolescence while thoroughly entertaining young readers.
