Publisher's Summary

Leo remembers the first time he met Sophie. When Leo first approached her, she was so focused on the book in front of her that she didn’t even notice him. Now, as Leo grows closer to Sophie, he begins to appreciate this aspect of his friend’s personality. Sophie possesses a sense of pride and determination that can take her far in life, but the actions of a conniving adult may ruin everything. 

Sophie is hiding a secret. She and her mother are illegal immigrants from Syria. Sophie learned the American ideals of independence and perseverance from her wise grandfather, and she is determined to find a way for her family to stay legally. She and Leo start a business together to raise money so Sophie can hire an immigration lawyer. But can one 13-year-old girl really keep her family safe? 

When Ingrid Sanders, a local politician who knows about Sophie’s secret, begins using the girl for her own ends, Sophie is faced with an enormously difficult decision. Should she go along with Ingrid’s schemes, or should she stand up for what she believes in? The decision will have a major impact on Sophie, her mother, and Leo himself!

Wonderful integration of character plot and theme.

Suspenseful and concise....loved subtle tributes to Ayn Rand, true coming of age classic. Hope to see sequel one day.
