Reviews - What do customers think about Sophie's Irish Showdown (Sophie Series, Book 4)?
Great for 11-13-year-old girls Jan 9, 2007
My daughter loves these books and has read nearly the entire series now. She easily relates to the heroine. She also has learned a lot from the situations Sophie finds herself in.
Sophie's Irish Showdown Apr 27, 2005
Sophie LaCroix is sure she and the Corn Flakes can shine in the school's talent show. However, when they are forbidden to use one of their films, they aren't sure what to do, until a new girl from Ireland, Darbie, moves into their group. She doesn't seem to like anyone, and Sophie can't figure out why- until her rough past comes to light.
Sophie decides to write a play based on Darbie's life. Darbie loves it, but Fiona's jealous and seems out to ruin the play.
Sophie thinks just like a regular girl, and her conflits are real. The writing is above par, and when the book concludes, there is the possibility of an unexpected new friend for Sophie.
Keep up the good work, Nancy Rue!
another gem Apr 16, 2005
Just when Sophie thinks she's getting better at controlling her imagination and getting her schoolwork done, the unthinkable happens. An Irish girl comes to town, and Sophie is determined to befriend her, but Darbie wants nothing to do with anyone, Corn Flake, Corn Pop, or Fruit Loop, so she's quickly dismissed as a snob by the popular crowd but Sophie is determined to befriend her-even if Maggie, Kitty, and especially Fiona find her annoying and rude. Plus Sophie has her own problems-namely Lacie, who gets busted at a youth retreat and sent home early. Lacie's own problems leave the parentals spending all their quality time assessing the church youth group and Lacie's actions. And now Sophie's sister has plenty of time to spend with her, because for the first time ever, Lacie is grounded and very, very bored. And a boating accident questions the future of the Corn Flakes meeting at Fiona's house. Just when things couldn't get worse, Fiona is stressed over not having a nanny for her troublesome brother and sister, and Fiona is mad at Sophie for investing so much time in Darbie. But when Sophie learns about Darbie's horrible past, she envisions using the Corn Flakes talents in the school art show to educate the Corn Pops and the Fruit Loops. Only problem is, Fiona is upset at being neglected and decides that maybe being a Corn Pop is better. Ultimately, it is Darbie and Lacie who teach Sophie lessons about love and friendship, and through a Bible story Sophie learns about washing each other's feet and loving people as they are. This book draws upon the New Testament story of Jesus washing the apostle's feet and uses it as an example of loving others unconditionally. This is the fourth in a series by Nancy Rue, and was preceded by "Sophie's World" (1), Sophie's Secret (2), and "Sophie and the Scoundrels" (3). Another gem from Nancy Rue.
