    I loved this graphic novel where "grown-up" Sophie re-reads diaries from her younger years and writes back to her. I would also like to recommend Sophie's newsletter, "You Are Doing A Good Enough Job" https://goodenoughjob.substack.com/ which is an absolute treasure to have show up in your inbox.

    I loved this book! I’ve long loved Sophie’s writing - it’s always been a balm for me. I loved the illustrations, the young Sophie entries (so relatable) and the note at the end. I keep a journal as well and found Sophie’s exploration of her old diaries to be soothing, inspiring, insightful and funny. I inhaled this book in a day.

    I LOVED THIS BOOK SO MUCH. I’m a big fan of graphic memoirs (And Now We Spill the Family Secrets was one of my favorite books last year), and this one hit home especially hard because I have a thirteen-year-old daughter, and more than anything I want her teenage years and young adulthood to be much less fraught than mine. I want her to stay confident and comfortable with herself in a way that I’m still figuring out. This book is about Sophie’s personal journey, but so many of her experiences are I LOVED THIS BOOK SO MUCH.

The whole idea of writing back and forth with your teenage self is so beautiful. Also: I am in madly in love with her illustration style. Highly recommended!!! * thank you to HarperOne Books for my copy of the book. This comes out March 22!

Det här är en fin liten bok med mycket kärlek, smärta och ärlighet som jag önskar att någon hade satt i mina händer när jag gick på gymnasiet.

    A thoughtful, tender look at the way we grow and change and learn, and an invitation to treat our present selves with the same kindness. A must read. Also hilarious.

    Wow!  Dear Sophie, Love Sophie is the graphic memoir from Sophie Lucido Johnson.  It weaves together letters, lists, and diary entries in a conversation with her teen-aged self.  This is a powerful book!  As an adult it is so important to address the past in order to move forward to the future.  It can be uplifting to see how far you have come in some areas and a wake up call for other areas.  I plan to pass this book onto my almost-teenager.  It is full of life advice that she wouldn't dream of Wow!  Dear Sophie, Love Sophie is the graphic memoir from Sophie Lucido Johnson.  It weaves together letters, lists, and diary entries in a conversation with her teen-aged self.  This is a powerful book!  As an adult it is so important to address the past in order to move forward to the future.  It can be uplifting to see how far you have come in some areas and a wake up call for other areas.  I plan to pass this book onto my almost-teenager.  It is full of life advice that she wouldn't dream of hearing from her parents (insert eye roll here).  I am so thankful to have received this gifted copy from @Harperone and I hope that in 20 years there will be a new installment from "Future Sophie."  Dear Sophie, Love Sophie is available now!

    As an avid letter writer, I loved this book so much. I paused every few pages to think back to my own high school years and what I’d say to my high school self. I’ve been learning more about self-compassion these past few years, and these gorgeous reflections and images will stay with me for a long time as I try to remember daily to be kind to myself.

    Interesting. Not my fave graphic memoir I've ever read, but not a waste of time. That said, there is some VERY triggering stuff in here re: eating, bodies and fatness. I *almost* put the book down because of it. Interesting. Not my fave graphic memoir I've ever read, but not a waste of time.

    I loved this book so much. Sophie's letters to her younger self were almost like letters to my younger self but much wiser and kinder than I think I could be. Highly recommend.

    3.5 I appreciated this as someone who wrote almost daily in a journal from 15-22, but at times it felt like a slog to get through.
