Review: Sophie and Carter by Chelsea Fine
Rating: 4.5 of 5 stars
While other high school seniors are dreaming about their futures, Sophie and Carter are just trying to make it through each day. Carter is overwhelmed by issues at home as he struggles to support his mother. Meanwhile, next door neighbour Sophie is left to care for her three younger siblings in place of their absent and troubled mother. All that holds these two best friends together is each other, and knowing that each night they'll sit together on Sophie's front porch swing and escape from reality, if just for awhile. But as their relationship reaches a turning point and high school graduation nears, will their friendship become something more? (Goodreads summary)
I love this book. Really. It's sweet, heartwarming and touching. I love every part of it. It’s an easy and quick read though I wouldn't really mind if the story is longer. I would love to see more of Sophie and Caster.
I admire their friendship, their relationship and their devotion to each other. They understand each other even without speaking, they know each others hurts and struggles and they know that they could trust and depend on each other. It was great and really heartwarming.
Reading the story in Sophie and Carter's POV made it more beautiful. You would understand the need of both the characters and its just really touching to know that the care and love they showed to each other are true and genuine. It would just make you smile and make your heart really warm.
Okay, I've been saying the same things over and over again just in different structure. But really, this is just really a wonderful read.
Read this! ^^
