Her mom doesn't really talk to her, and the other adults in her life are pressuring Sophie to talk about her bruises. Sophie worries that if she tells, she will be sent to live in a group home. Her friend Jujube is the only person who knows the truth, and now Jujube, too, wants Sophie to speak up.

Something Girl

Being abused is repulsive, especially when it comes from one of your parents. Have you ever felt that no matter what, it's never good enough? Ir that if you better yourself you'll make someone love you? That's exactly how Sophie feels. Her father hits her. Beats her. "Stupid. No good. Nothing." That's what she is, or so her father tells her. Does she believe it? Something Girl is a tale of abuse written! By Beth Goobie; that will leave you asking these questions. Goobie uses her voice to relate to teens through Sophie. Sophie is like your typical teenager. She likes to hang out with her friends, go to dances, go out with her boyfriend. She likes music, reading, and daydreaming. She isn't all that hip on school, but she doesn't completely hate it either. It's almost as if you can see eye to eye with her. As the book takes you through her everyday life, you'll get to see every aspect of it. Sophie's good friend, Jujube, believes in aliens. She also believes that the next place they'll land is there in the town where she and Sophie reside. Will Sophie get out? Alive? Will her mother just keep staring olut the window, not speaking a word? Will her father stop? Can she better herself enough to make him love her? Or will the aliens come, just like Jujube predicts? What do you do when you can't get away? Sophie can go to her favorite hide out, but she can't stay there forever. She can go to Jujube's and stay the night. But she can't stay forever. She also can't tell anyone what her father's doing to her. He is, of course, a well respected business man. If Sophie tells anyone, word will get out. And there goes her father's job. The only thing that puts food on the table, and buys her clothes. What is she to do?
