Written by Sarah Weeks, "So B. It" is a quiet, contemporary story about a 13 year old girl named Heidi It searching for the truth about her mother and her own story before she was discovered in the hallway of an apartment complex at about a week old. Heidi was raised by her agoraphobic neighbor and a mentally disabled mother who only has 23 words. One of her words, “soof,” is haunting Heidi. She must know what it means and is determined to find out.
Like most things, the best discoveries come along the way. I am pretty sure every person has had those embarrassing moments Heidi finds herself in during her journey.
This book is clean and satisfying, offering a unique premise that will prompt the reader to think about family a little different.
