Author: Sarah Weeks
You couldn't really tell about Mama's brain just from looking at her, but it was obvious as soon as she spoke. She had a high voice, like a little girl's, and she only knew twenty-three words. I know this for a fact, because we kept a list of the things Mama said tacked to the inside of the kitchen cabinet. Most of the words were common ones, li...  more »

Heidi is a twelve-year-old girl who is being raised by Bernadette, who is like her guardian. Twelve years ago, Heidi's mom knocked on a stranger's door and said that she had a "bum brain," had nowhere to live, and was holding a baby.

Bernadette takes care of Heidi and her mom, who claims that her name is "So B. It." Heidi now wants to learn more about her mom, so she takes a road trip, by herself, to find out more about her mother's mysterious past. She doesn't really know where she is going, so she just goes wherever the path takes her. But even as little as Heidi knows about her mother, she loves her.

This book reminded me a lot of WALK TWO MOONS, because the storyline is similar. That a good thing in my opinion, because I love that book! At the beginning of SO B. IT, you are kind of like "okay, get on with it," but then the story gets interesting. This is a simple yet complicated book, which makes it very interesting.

I really enjoyed this book. I am not very good at summarys, and could never do this book justice, but it is a great book. The characters are very vivid, you grow to love all of them, and the story kept my interest. I think the middle was more solid then the end, but all in all it is still a great book. This book would be great for ages 12-100.

I absolutely LOVED this book sooo much, i read it over the summer and couldn't stop reading it... this book is such a good book with so many cliff hangers making you want to keep going on forever till the book is over. some parts in this book made me wanna cry actually a lot of parts did but that's because i can kind of relate to this book in a few ways, but if you like mysteries then i deffinatly recommend this book to you . it's a real touching book, and the readers of it will genuinely be touched.
i loved it and i bet you will too so read this book i recommend it a lot!!!!!!

A sweet book. This was my teen daughter's. It was on the pile to be listed. I picked it up and gave it a chance. It held my interest. I cared about the main character, and wondered HOW her disabled mom came to be next door to Bernadette. I wondered how many people in this world would be as kind as Dette. Could this be realistic? Maybe. I cheered for Heidi on her trip, and said a big, "Oh- no!" when she was pickpocketed. I wondered why Heidi and her mom ended up so far from where they started, and reflected on how complicated things got when her mother became pregnant. But isn't that how life is?
