Review: Sophie & Carter By: Chelsea Fine

Title: Sophie & Carter
Author: Chelsea Fine
Publisher: Acacia Publishing, Inc., 112 Pages (June 20th 2011)
From: the Author & Publisher, Thank You!

Synopsis: 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 neighbor 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?

Review: 4 Stars - Sophie & Carter By Chelsea Fine is a big story in a small package. Don’t let the length of the book fool you. There’s much to be felt in this story of two teens at the end of their senior year of High School as they try to survive the troubling home lives they’ve been dealt.

Sophie and Carter have grown up with their fair share of problems. Living next door to each other they have seen and experienced firsthand the issues each has gone through. No one knows what the two face day in and day out within the walls of their homes… except each other. The two have found ways to survive and be there for each other when no one else was able to. Written in alternating points of view was just an added bonus in their story.

As I’ve mentioned in previous reviews for various books recently, I love a story told in alternating or multi points of view, just as this one is. It gives the readers such a well rounded view of what the main characters are going through – especially when it’s female and male leads.

Both are strong, yet vulnerable in their struggles to get through day by day. They care for each other more than they really know and every night when they have made it through another day they come together and find some peace in their otherwise overwhelming and very adult lives.

Reading this book from cover to cover in one sitting is easy to do, however when you reach the end of the story you don’t want it to end. You just know that there is more to what they have to say and thankfully I found out via the authors website that she is working on a sequel to their story, which should hopefully be ready for release sometime in spring 2012. I can’t tell you how excited this makes me and yeah, you should be just as thrilled as I am.

All in all Sophie and Carter’s story will find its way straight to your heart. How Fine was able to fit so much into such a quick read is pretty amazing. Their story truly does pack a punch and at the end you’ll be right there with me and everyone else as we eagerly await the continuation of their story as they embark on their adventure and what comes next in their lives after High School.
