Her humourous misadventures are frequently the result of her own doing. Whose idea was it to pause and swing leisurely from the rope spanning the creek on her return trip from the store thereby causing the ice cream to melt in the summer sun? Could she not wait until after school to search for her treasured Star Girl Super Bounce Ball, earning her a detention for being late after recess?
Did she have to shove her brother away from the microphone during the talent contest, making it fall and break so that she had to screech out to project her voice?
When it really matters though, Sophie is up to the challenge: Suddenly a muffled scream and a loud splash broke the silence. She jumped off the path and lunged through the bushes toward the creek. Thorny vines clawed at her arms and legs, but she yanked them aside and hurried down.
The first thing she noticed was the rope swing. It was dangling over the stream, still swaying slightly.

What is Kobo Super Points?
Sophie is 10 years old, a French-Canadian girl whose large family has been transplanted from Montreal to a town in rural British Columbia. The year is , and Sophie is an exuberant girl who is always getting into scrapes, and who takes as her role model a comic book heroine, Star Girl. After spending the last few months of the last school year at a local public school that is ruled by the snobby Elizabeth Proctor, Sophie is delighted when a French parochial school opens and she is sent there for her fifth grade classes - not only is there no snooty Elizabeth, but everybody speaks French, just as she does at home!
Alas, soon there is trouble in the new school when the provincial government sends an unreasonable tax bill and the teachers go on strike, sending the children back to the public schools once again, and Sophie is once again in Elizabeth Proctor's sights Not a bad book, but honestly, not very interesting either, although I was curious as to whether the anti-Francophone racism was accurate to the time - I think it may well have been.

When I was young, I was a Reader. I read everything I could get my hands on. When I first learnt to read in Grade one, I was so excited, I rushed home and taught my little brother, Bryan to read too. Now he loves books as much as I do.
