Waiting on Wednesday: Soof by Sarah Weeks
Soof by Sarah Weeks. Scholastic Press/ Scholastic Inc., October 8, 2018. 9780545846653.
Sarah Weeks posted the cover of her Soof arc on social media (FB & Twitter a few weeks ago). So excited for this as she's one of my favorite authors. Regular readers of this blog might recall that she visited my school this past fall. I read So B. It well before I started blogging but reviewed Pie for SLJ and reviewed Honey here.
Publisher synopsis: All her life, Aurora has heard stories about Heidi and all the good luck she brought Aurora's family. Aurora, though, doesn't feel very lucky. The kids at school think she's weird. And she's starting to think her mom thinks she's weird too. Especially compared to Heidi.
On the eve of a visit from Heidi, more bad luck hits Aurora's family. There's a fire in their attic, destroying a good part of their house. And, even worse, Aurora's beloved dog goes missing. Aurora and her family have always believed in soof--Heidi's mom's word for love. But sometimes even when soof is right there in front of you, you still need to find it-- and that's exactly what Aurora is going to do.
