I just finished reading this book this morning. It is a children's book about a girl named Sophie. In the land where Sophie lives, the third-born child is considered to be the successful one. Since Sophie is an eldest child, she has no big hopes for her future. Nonetheless, she ends up living an exciting life filled with magic, wizards and witches.
This book was a really fun read. At times, I wished that the author would have gone into more detail. The story seemed shallow at times, like it was just brushing over events, giving an abridged version of the story. Still, maybe it's fun to get to fill in all the details yourself :) Anyway, now I really want to watch the movie.
