Nyxen's Review of "What My Mother Doesn't Know"

What My Mother Deosn't Know by Sonya Sones
259 Pages Paperback
Simon & Schuster 2001

My name is Sophie.
This book is about me.
It tells
the heart-stoppingly riveting story
of my first love.
And also 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 body
and my heart
just don't seem to be able to agree
on anything.

This book was published awhile back and is one of those books that you just completely forget about. Sophie is just a regular teenage girl who is trying to find the right guy, despite being so young.

She just wants that special somebody to be in her life like a lot of us do. I really related to this book because I remember when I was almost fourteen (four months ago) almost fifteen wanting that special someone.

This book was just very entertaining and hilarious. Despite the verse like format I really enjoyed it. I wished it could have been longer, with actual descriptions but I was content with it. Sonya Sones can really write in a teenager's perspective. Sophie is at the age where pretty much she is starting to develop in all ways and everything else that comes in that territory.

It's a very heart-warming book (does that make sense?) that you'll hopefully love if you pick it up. Sophie may go through many love interest but you can always tell if she's found the right one. It's a very bubbly tale that I reccomend if you want a quick read. Literally, it took a few hours to read this book.

I rate this novel Four Stars.


  1. This sounds like a really cute book. I need light, quick, and bubbly in my life. There are way too many sad books out there lately, haha. :P Anyway, great review! :)

  2. I can honestly say - I love the title! Can't wait to add it to my TBR list.

  3. Hi Nyxen,

    I like your review! Thanks! And I like the design of your blog. Especially the lettering and shadow over the picture. How do you do that? I am about to begin work on a blog of my own...
