What My Mother Doesn't Know by: Sonya Sones

This book is about a girl name Sophie who is 15 and is boy crazy just like the rest of us. Sophie finally gets asked out by the boy of her dreams, Dylan and knows it is true love. But she starts to notice that there are some problems. He actually watches the movie on their dates and he doesn't want to tell his parents that she is Jewish. While trying to find someone other then Dylan, she starts to have strong feelings for a boy name, Murph. Liking Murph turns out to be a whole lot harder then liking Dylan. Murph is the school's biggest dork. Sophie doesn't know how she is going to tell her friends about her feelings for Murph but if she doesn't come clean she will be as bad as everyone else who makes fun of them. What My Mother Doesn't Know is a book written in verse about a girl who is being true to herself and having the strength to not give up on what makes her and her heart happy.  I would recommend this book to girls because it is about love, drama, relationships, and friendships.
