About this title:

Synopsis: Sophie Stein, aged 13, falls in love, outgrows the boy, searches for her Mr Right-and-a-half and finds him where she least thought to look. So truthful, so touching, this sequence of poems shows Sonya Sones' remarkable gift of empathy for her characters and builds up to a narrative that has you on the edge of your seat. This is an irresistible book that simply says everything about first love and will have an enormously wide appeal.

'Even in the severe limitations that the modern young impose upon their language, Sonya Sones finds poetry – the poetry of First Things. In WHAT MY MOTHER DOESN'T KNOW, the poet sweeps lyrically through the door she opened in STOP PRETENDING. Hers is a voice that the literature of the young has been waiting for' Richard Peck, 2000 Newbery Award winner

Review: Meet Sophie. She sees herself as the too-tall "Mount Everest of teenage girls," who, along with her friends, often suffers from "lackonookie disease." She's dating smoky, sexy Dylan, covertly chatting online with "cybersoul"-mate Chaz, and secretly nursing a crush on sweet, geeky Murphy. Her two best friends are closer to her than sisters, and she "hates hating" her soap opera-addicted mom, wishing "she would show half as much interest in my life as she does in Luke and Laura's." In other words, Sophie is a typical teenage girl. What is not so typical is how author Sonia Sones records all of Sophie's thoughts in a freewheeling verse that is such a naked outpouring of inner longing, most readers will blush in embarrassed recognition of their own remembered or current teenage desires. Sones gently leads both the reader and Sophie towards an understanding of the difference between love and lust as Sophie slowly comes to realize that Dylan's outsides are no match for Murphy's insides. Autobiographical of Sones, perhaps? The author claims it isn't so, and she's probably right. With her frank manner, lusty thoughts, and hidden insecurities, Sophie reflects many teenage girls, past and present. No woman will be able to read this heartfelt verse novel and not find a bit of herself in Sophie's secret, sexy thoughts. Sones's decadent, almost shamefully delicious collection of angst poems is a loving and amazingly accurate tribute to adolescent girlhood. (Ages 12 and older) --Jennifer Hubert
