If you know a girl around the ages of 8-12 you have got to introduce them to Sophie! Sophie’s World is the first book in the Faithgirlz Sophie series by author Nancy Rue.
On the playground at school, the day after a field trip to the historic village of Williamsburg, Sophie LaCroix, the heroine of the Faithgirlz! series, gets lost in a daydream as an eighteenth-century patriot who risks her life to help the colonial troops. When Fiona comes up and asks Sophie where she its, it’s the beginning of a great friendship–one that takes two kindred spirits to many imaginary places to videotape their “blockbuster” movies. Maggie joins in, offering her dress-up supplies for costumes, and the three become fast friends.
Sophie and Fiona are incensed when they discover there’s a “plot” afoot among the Corn Pops–the popular girls–to humiliate Kitty Stefenatti because she made the mistake of trying to wriggle her way into the group. They decide to use their newfound Revolutionary War tactics to stage a battle against Kitty’s inevitable degradation, catching the whole Corn Pops treachery on videotape. Maggie shows up just when they need her, and Kitty is saved.
In the midst of her colonial American daydreams, Sophie learns one of the absolute truths: God Loves you. Even if your circumstances may tell you otherwise, he loves you.
