    What did you love best about Chasing Sophea?

    I loved having a peek at mental illness and how a family handled or didn't handle it. i loved how the family used a combination of family love and therapy to handle the main characters problem.

    How did aunt baby get in the dalia house when she went to California.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    I enjoyed the book but the narrator Ms. Peele was very irritating because she kept taking sips of water and swallowing through th whole book. Made it hard to enjoy the book.

    "AMAZING"

    If I could give this book a rating from 1 to 10. It would definately be a 10. This is one of the best books that I have read in a long time. It was a little hard to follow at first but it was well worth the wait. It had a very different touch to it. It was based in Dallas County, a familiar area to me. This is a great read. Running from our past and chasing our future.
