Synopsis: For a third-grader, Sophie Simon is one smart cookie. She enjoys teaching herself advanced calculus and has performed successful heart surgery on an earthworm. She's also very clever when it comes to dealing with her clueless parents. But Sophie is no genius when it comes to calculating the high value of friendship--until, that is, she has to use her incredible IQ to help out some classmates with their own parental troubles. (from the back of the book)
Review: I read this article and promptly purchase some of the books. This was one. It was delightful! Sophie is the smartest girl in the world, and all she wants is a graphing calculator - and it takes the friends she didn't want to help her get it. Sophie was a hoot (without meaning to be) and I liked the seeing the adults from the child's perseptive. I highly recommend this book for the nerdy child and the nerdy child-at-heart!
Note: This book is for middle grade - meaning kids age six to nine.
