Teen Romance: What My Mother Doesn't Know by Sonya Sones

About the Book: What my Mother Doesn't Know is the story of almost 15 year old Sophie and the adventures that she has in life and in love during the first half of her sophomore year. Sophie takes the reader through her struggles with her family, her friends, and her search for Mr. Right.

The Teen King's Ruling: Written in enchanting verse, Sonya Sones presents the angst of teenage life in a clear and concise, but completely fun way. Sophie is a thoroughly enjoyable character and the brief glimpses into the different episodes of her life leave the reader reliving high school memories, or looking forward to future high school experiences. I give this book a 6 out of 10.
Spoilers (Highlight to View) --->I found myself extremely annoyed at two parts of the book. First, when Sophie allows her romance will Dylan to fizzle because of her online beau, and second when her instincts tell her to go for Robin, but she waits until the end of the book to do so. But maybe that's just because I am a guy and I see things differently than a girl does.<---
