Book Summary

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?

A girl. A boy. A porch swing.
Sometimes life breaks your heart.
And sometimes the boy next door puts it back together.

Book Review

Sophie & Carter is a short, sweet read. This is Chelsea Fine’s first book, and I should say she made a fine one. It is not the usual YA novel where the boy next door sweeps you off your feet and gets you to bed, instead, it reveals a tender, young love that started with friendship. It doesn’t need dialogues to show how the two of them care for each other because the small things they to do for each other says it all.

They’re not the perfect kids nor live in the perfect environment. They both had hard lives, and they unload each other’s burden by sharing it (yeah, while sitting on the porch swing).

The love story wasn’t rushed, it was paced perfectly. I love every minute of it. If you like a quick, engaging read that would make your heart swoon with delight – THIS IS THE BOOK!

Favorite Quotes

If you’re referring to yourself as ‘grown-up’, then you’re still totally a kid. ‘Grown-ups’ call themselves adults.
