Can Sophie win over the not-shy-not-scared new girl at school?

When a new student, Hailey, joins Sophie's Grade 3 class at Hilltop Elementary, Sophie wants to become her friend. Hailey seems confident and fun, and Sophie's sure they would have a good time.

But Sophie's efforts to be a good friend go hilariously wrong. From attracting frowns from the principal to slapstick disaster on the classroom floor, Sophie makes one wrong move after another. To make matters worse, Hailey makes friends easily with Sophie's pals Enoli and Brayden. Sophie feels left out, but does she give up? No! Sophie is determined to find a way to make Hailey feel welcome.

A humorous story loaded with heart, Sophie Trophy Too is sure to appeal to any kid who has had that left-out feeling.
