My Review
4 Stars

Sophie’s parents have decided it is time to move from New York City to Victor, West Virginia. Sophie decides that this will be a great move until her mother tells her that there is no library in Victor. Of course the little book lover is broken hearted and very unsure about this move. But her mother has a surprise that will make everything better.

This was a great, short story for mid grade readers. Sophie is such a strong person for her age and does a fantastic job adjusting to a new world and adventure. Although I think about a nine year old on her own at a Starbucks in New York a bit odd her parents must really trust her and the area.

I do wish there was a little bit more about the bookmobile. We have this big build up but then just a short chapter. I think there could have been a little more information for those that have never been around a bookmobile or how it works.

Over all I really liked the story and I would recommend it for kids and adults alike,

I received a complimentary copy of this book. I voluntarily chose to read and post an honest review.
