Sophie and her sister were close and she Sophie was torn between staying with her Nonna and family to going to see her sister and Sophie’s nice as well. I think Sophie had felt distance between her and her cousins too since they were apart for a while before seeing eachother again. But glad they worked it out. I think she was close to her Nonna and papa but was not happy at first about the dates. I really liked the book. Finished it last night. What a great story.

I found it interesting that Sophie felt that she wasn’t as close to her family as before. She felt that she was on the outside because she did not live in the same town as the rest of the fab four. Even though the drive to her grandparents’ town is not that far. She started pulling away from the fab four because of this but it also meant that she was spending less time with her other family members, like her uncles, aunts, and grandparents.
Even though she saw her family less you can tell that they were still a large factor in her life. She decided to go along with the dates to make her Nonna happy. At the end of the day Sophie loves her family and wants their happiness.

It’s interesting how the Fab Four and Sophie had differing opinions on why she seemed to distance herself from them and the rest of the family, but ultimately, they were all hurt when she wasn’t around as much.
