    1. Wow After seeing so many high praises for Goobie s later releases, I m a little taken aback by how much I disliked this Because in a nutshellis sucked I hardly ever say that feel bad especially because this deals with the sensitive subject of parental abuse, but I can think of a hundred books with this theme before I d recommend SOMETHING GIRL.Let s start with the MC, Sophie Supposedly she s fifteen, but has the naivety of a child I seriously thought she was in elementary school, certainly not h [...]

    17. I read this book to my seventh grade class It s a short, low lexile book with high interest They really enjoyed it It only took us three days to get through because it s so short, but the kids were very interested and wanted to check out books from the library that were similar to Something Girl The book is about a girl in an abusive home who realizes that she is something instead of nothing I don t want to go into detail because it is very short and simple and anything would give it all away [...]

    18. this book is so powering and strong it has all the meanings of abuse to young teens who have been abused then finally got away from it to all who has had abusive relationships with parents boyfriends or anything you are very strong this book is about how her dad is abusive and how he beats her when she does something wrong or something if this book sounds good i inspire anybody to read this this book is for boys and girls does not matter adult or young adult

    19. This book was okay It had a great story, but I felt like it was a little to easy to read This book is perfect for a quick read kinda thing I was so happy when Sophie and her mother got to free from her dad It was really sad that Sophie was convinced that her dad beat her and didnt love her because of something she did I was so glad when Sophie s friend Jujubee told the nurse that her father was beating her.

    20. For a short read this was a very engaging book It is a wonderful example of YA literature, providing teens with a glimpse of the troubling life of living in an abusive home However, this story is not about wrapping the narrative up with a pretty bow, but to show us how a story s conclusion will continue long after we re allowed to witness it This story is not about ending one story, but merely showing how one begins.

    21. this is a girl about her dad that did child abuse so she tells lies to friends and teachers she scared to tell anyone that her dad would be mad if she told on him so she ends in a hospital because of her dad so she had a neck brace on her she could not move she was scared when her dad was coming in her room what he would do so her dad had to stay away from her he kissed her on her forehead so she goes in a group home for four mounths so she was unconformable meting new friends

    22. I know it was a short book, but despite that it didn t have much of a plot line Also it was written at a very basic level It kind of seemed like I was reading a book written for a 3rd grader, which it might have been I don t really know I just really didn t like it It was quite boring But it is short so it s a good way to waste 45 min if you have nothing better to do.

    23. WHAT I LEARNED ABOUT THIS BOOK IS THAT YOU SHOULD ALWAYS TELL SOMEONE IF YOU ARE GETTING HIT OR ABUSED BY YOUR PARENTSSO WHAT I LEARNED ABOUT THIS BOOK IS THAT A TRUE FRIEND IS ONE WHO KNOW S WHEMN SOMETHING IS WRONGIS BOOK IS A VERY GOOD BOOK IF I WERE YOU I WOULD READ IT BUT I MAY COME TO A POINT WERE YOU WOULD WANT TO CRY OR FEEL BAD

    24. If you ve read Goobie s Sticks and Stones, then you ll appreciate Sophie s story all the Sophie is Jujube s best friend in Sticks and Stones Something Girl is all about Sophie s story of self destruction and abuse Every teenage girl should read this book It s raw and emotional We can learn a lot from this Something Girl.

    25. i think this book is intresting because it explains the life of a teen and how her dad abuses her for various reasons, like for example when she came home late because she was with her boyfriend her dad was waiting in the living room and then he hit her head against the wall multiple times and then when she went up to her bed she wasnt allowed to get out of it because her dad would hit her again

    26. This actually set a backdrop for the character Sophie in Sticks and Stones Like her little storyThis book was sopowerfulI could feel the pain she felt, as if it were happening to me I haven t been to her situation so I can t say I know how he feels I loved it, it felt actually very real Bravo Beth Goobie, I love one of your books 3

    27. I was amazed on how her dad, after years of telling her the same awful words, managed to make her believe Sophie is a stupid, no good, nothing girl roughout the book I was annoyed on how Sophie thought it was her fault her dad hurts her It annoyed me to think that someone could persuade someone to think that.

    28. This book is about a girl name Sophie , she is in trouble She is on probation for stealing and doing poorly at school Her mom doesn t really talk to her, and other people in her life like are asking her baout her bruise and talking about her life Sophie only has one friend name Jujube.Jujube is the only person she talks to and also jujube knows what happen to her and how her life is.
