Tt's not easy being a nine-year-old kid in the middle of a busy, gifted family. Especially when the list of things you're good at includes only two items--"Crying" and "Stopping crying"--and the list of things you're not good at seems to be getting longer every day. When Sophie's mom suggests that she's good at being kind and just needs a little more practice, Sophie feels hopeful. But being kind to a grouchy old lady or her big sister, Nora, or the weird new girl at school isn't as easy as it sounds. If only Sophie were a queen, she could practice being kind to commoners instead. It would be much more dignified and elegant. And she would finally get to wear her very own diamond tiara. . . . From the author of the popular Owen Foote books, here is a funny, observant novel about an irrepressible girl, as quirky and original in her own way as Owen is in his, in search of her own special talent.
