Happy Sock Sunday! This week, I will be reading Addie Bell’s Shortcut to Growing Up by Jessica Brody. This sock sunday is special because it will be the first Sock Sunday with my little sister, Greyson who was just born this past Tuesday (Sept 19th). Greyson will occasionally make Sock Sunday appearances. She has the cutest pairs of socks ever! Today, I thought that it would be more special if she joined in with me to celebrate her first ever Sock Sunday! Let me just give you a background about Grey, she is a HUGE elephant lover and, she will be a future avid reader! I also, wore grey socks to honor her! Yay! 💖
Seventh grader Addie Bell can’t wait to grow up. Her parents won’t let her have her own phone, she doesn’t have any curves, and her best friend, Grace, isn’t at all interested in makeup or boys. Then, on the night of her twelfth birthday, Addie makes a wish on a magic jewelry box to be sixteen . . . and wakes up to find her entire life has been fast-forwarded four years! Suddenly she has everything she’s always wanted (including a driver’s license and a closet full of cool clothes)! But Addie soon discovers a lot more has changed than she expected—including her friendship with Grace. Can Addie turn back time and take back her wish . . . or has she lost the chance to experience what could have been the best years of her life?
