The Wonder Spot: Book summary and reviews of The Wonder Spot by Melissa Bank
The Wonder Spot Summary
Bank (author of The Girl's Guide to Hunting & Fishing) is back with her signature combination of devilishly self-deprecating humor, seriousness and wisdom. Nothing comes easily to Sophie Applebaum, the black sheep of her family trying to blend in with the herd. The Wonder Spot follows Sophie's quest for her own identity -- who she is, what she loves, whom she loves, and occasionally whom she feels others should love -- over the course of 25 years. In an often-disappointing world, Sophie listens closely to her own heart.
