review 1: Sophie is a smart kiddo who sees the world a little differently than most of her peers. When her one goal can be accomplished by helping others meet theirs, Sophie finds out that it actually is nice to have friends after all. The story is funny with clever bits.

... moreraff created a character that is so resolutely into what she is into that her social life suffers.

This has the makings of a Nancy Drew but even smarter series. One can hope. less

Somewhat funny... The intended audience will enjoy it, I'm sure, and it's a quick little read.
What these characters call civil disobedience I call plain naughtiness. #bookaday
