    Sophie is brilliant- stratospherically brilliant. In third grade, she is reading college texts-- her parents are clueless, her teacher is clueless, her classmates uninterested in and uninteresting to Sophie- all fine with her until she realizes that her calculus text is useless without...

    Sophie Simon is a quirky, 3rd-grade genius. Sophie wants two things in life -- 1) a graphing calculator so she can teach herself calculus; and 2) for her parents to accept and feel proud of who she is. What Sophie doesn't think she needs are friends. In this tale of interwoven characte...

    This book is absolutely adorable. I immediately loved Sophie Simon (who is smarter than I am, and probably has been her entire life) and---while she doesn't have any friends---she knows pretty much everything and once you do know essentially everything, who needs friends anyway? Exc...

    This is a rather annoying book, filled with stereotypes, unsympathetic adults, and bratty or stupidly portrayed children. The stereotype that hits home most with me is the characterization of Sophie, the gifted genius. Her nose is always in a book, she has no interest in friends or peo...

    Sophie Simon is a genius. Her parents are discouraged that their child is not normal. When other kids want to play outside, she wants to be reading. When other kids are asking for the new toys to play with, she's asking for a graphing calculator. Her parents are not happy. So when she ...

    This was an odd book. I got it as a read aloud for my 1st grade daughter. She LOVED this book. There were things I liked about this book - good writing, an unexpected story, a girl not afraid of being smart and exactly who she is - and things I didn't like about this book. The adults w...

    Sophie can't be bothered with things like friends. She's got more important things to think about--like complicated math equations. Only for the kind of math she's interested in, she needs a special graphing calculator: the Pembo Q-60, which costs $100. But when her classmates come to ...

    Sophie Simon would be a GREAT read aloud for 2nd - 4th graders! Cute short little story about a 3rd grade genius, who just wants to read and to have her own Pembo Q-60 calculator. Her parents worry she has no friends. A few classmates approach Sophie for help, either to get out of a ba...

    I've always wanted to like Lisa Graff's books but none of them have really ever grabbed me. Until now. Sophie Simon is a uniquely self-interested genius who wants only one thing: a brand new graphing calculator. Trouble is, she has moron parents who would sooner drop dead than give her...

    Sophie Simon is VERY advanced academically for a 3rd grader. She loves calculus and psychology, but her parents want her to be "normal" and giggle with her friends; her teacher wants only rote compliance. Sophie wants a graphing calculator. In the course of the story, Sophie finds that...
