"Everything is temporary...until it's not."
Join Sofie on her new (mis)adventures in Stevens Point, Wisconsin. She didn't ask for those nasty 'pets'. She didn't want to be famous. And she definitely did not expect a bigger family. But no one ever asks the 5th grader for her opinion!

The Wig by Renata Suerth is a self published 2013 release. This book is targeted for the middle grade reader.

Sofia and her younger sister, Izzy is living with their grandmother, Ursula while their parents are away. Sofia is mortified when her grandmother waits until the last minute to purchase school supplies. By that time all the good stuff was gone.

Sofie’s adventures continue when she enrolls in her new school. The summer has ended. The temporary living arrangements with Grandma Ursula do not seem quite so transient any more. School time brings new challenges to the gutsy, indomitable fifth-grader – even after her younger sister pulls a really dirty trick on her. Sofie and her grandmother react to events with differing viewpoints, but their companionship and respect deepens as they navigate the unexpected hurdles thrown their way. Just as ...more

While reading this one to her she burst in to fits of laughter so many times and throughout the whole book she asked questions and started so many new conversations. This book engaged her so much she has asked me to read it to her again. This would be such a good read for those entering their ...more

I read and wrote as soon a I could read and write. I also listened . . . a lot . . . to people's stories.
