One day, 14-year-old Sophie Amundsen comes home from school to find two notes in her mailbox, with one question on each: Who are you? and Where does the world come from?

From that irresistible beginning, Sophie becomes obsessed with questions that take her far beyond what she knows of her Norwegian village. Through those letters, she enrolls in a kind of correspondence course, covering Socrates to Sartre, with a mysterious philosopher, while receiving letters addressed to another girl. Who is Hilde? And why does her mail keep turning up? To unravel this riddle, Sophie must use the philosophy she is learning - but the truth turns out to be far more complicated than she could have imagined.

A riveting novel that is also an exploration of the great philosophical concepts of Western thought, Sophie's World, with more than 30 million copies in print, has fired the imaginations all over the world.

    " This is by far one of my favorite books, and I wish I would of had a chance to read something like it as a teenager. The story weaves around a teenager who meets a philosophical mentor, who enlightens her and broadens her view of the world, changing her circumstances within it. It covers an intro to the vast philosophical canon - namely the most famous of historical philosophers. This should be a must read for any high school curriculum. "

    " A little too simplistically written. It *is* a YA novel, however. "
