From the Publisher:
|My name is Sophie.|This book is about me.|It tells|the heart-stoppingly riveting story|of my first love.|And also of my second.|And, okay, my third love too.|
It's not that I'm boy crazy.|It's just that even though|I'm almost fifteen|it's like|my mind |and my body|and my heart|just don't seem to be able to agree|on anything.

"[S]ones has crafted a verse experience that will leave teenage readers sighing with recognition and satisfaction." 09/15/2001 Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"Sophie's romance with Murphy will undoubtedly appeal to girls who secretly fantasize about the quiet boy in the back of the class, and teens looking for a quick and pleasant read may appreciate both the brevity of these poems and the familiarity of their content." - Jeannette M. Hulick December 2001
