While other high school seniors are dreaming about their futures, Sophie and Carter are just trying to make it through each day. Carter is overwhelmed by issues at home as he struggles to support his mother. Meanwhile, next door neighbour Sophie is left to care for her three younger siblings in place of their absent and troubled mother. All that holds these two best friends together is each other, and knowing that each night they'll sit together on Sophie's front porch swing and escape from reality, if just for awhile. But as their relationship reaches a turning point and high school graduation nears, will their friendship become something more
My thoughts on Sophie & CarterPublish Date: July 25, 2011
The general idea: Sophie and Carter both have crappy lives and the only happiness they find is with each other (and Sophie's siblings)
Thoughts upon seeing the cover art: It's cute.
It made me feel: It could have been developed into a longer book but I enjoyed at the length it was.
Highlight: Sophie's little sister
