Meet Sophie. She loves to write. Just pray it's not about you. In this psychological thriller that lives at the intersection of James Patterson and Stephen King, you will meet Cathy--a thirtysomething teacher in a challenged, urban district. Her life-long struggle with an anxiety disorder keeps her preoccupied beyond the normal struggles of school life. And the start of any school year brings her panic attacks to fever pitch. This year, Cathy would meet young Sophie Lafontaine--a quiet, third-grade girl who may not be much for conversation, but whose imagination and creative writing more than make up for that. And when her journal entries begin to manifest into actual events in Cathy's life, it envelops her teacher in a reality that she is ultimately helpless to control. When Cathy confronts this and attempts to steer Sophie's gift, it is met with disastrous consequences. Each time she thinks she has nothing to lose, the world shows her otherwise. HOW CAN CATHY LIVE A LIFE WHERE NOTHING IS REAL FOR HER OR ANYONE AROUND HER UNTIL IT IS WRITTEN IN SOPHIE'S JOURNAL?
