When Sophie's family moves from New York City to West Virginia, she not only has to leave her friends and the city and library she loves so much, but she has to figure out what will happen when she discovers that there is no library in her new town. But when she discovers something called a bookmobile and other new treasures, all is right with the world.
First of all, can I just say how much I love the cover art. It's vibrant and perfect for this book and age range.
As an avid reader who already has kids who are following in my footsteps, I can really get behind this books message.
There isn't a whole lot of action or adventure, more of a basic Middle-Grade read, but I think in that aspect it does very well.
Solid writing that is easy to follow with illustrations along the way that are wonderfully done.
