Leaving Sophie Dean by Alexandra Whitaker

Reviewed by Julie Moderson

Leaving Sophie Dean Leaving Sophie Dean by Alexandra Whitaker is definitely one of the best books I have ever read. It is one of those rare books you don’t want to ever end.

Whitaker has such fantastic characters that you feel like they are your best friends. She makes you laugh and cry at the same time and cheer for Sophie because she is one of a kind.

We have all read the typical books about the end of a relationship but this is such a unique book. It is not only about divorce but also about relationships between a husband and wife as friends. It is about how some do more taking and others do more giving in the relationship and how all relationships do change with some for the better and some for the worse. It is also about two people who love their children so much and give so much to keep their children first above all else. Isn’t that the way it is supposed to be?
