Robin Murphy must face the ultimate test of faith. Kidzworld reviews What My Girlfriend Doesn’t Know by Sonya Sones.

Author: Sonya Sones

Robin Murphy isn’t the most popular kid at Cambridge High School. In fact, he’s so unpopular that the jocks use his last name as an insult—“You’re such a Murphy!” If Murphy were in the dictionary, the definition would read loser, loner, moron, geek or any other hurtful insult you can dream up.

Outlaws Rule

You’d think his circumstances would change now that he’s dating the beautiful, popular Sophie. Perhaps he’d get a little kudos from the jocks for landing such a catch, or raise a few notches on the popularity totem pole. But you’d be wrong. Instead, everyone at school thinks Sophie’s gone insane. Even her best friends refuse to be seen with her while she’s dating Robin. People at school try to sabotage their relationship. But Sophie stands her ground. She likes Robin and that’s all that matters. Robin can’t believe his luck.

In The Nude

Robin does have one thing going for him—he’s a very talented artist. His art teacher signs him up for a drawing class at Harvard University. There, he’s given the ultimate test of faith…twice. The students aren’t drawing bowls of fruit in that art class. No, sir! They’re drawing nude portraits…of real naked women! Robin can’t help but get excited. After all, when else can you stare at a woman’s breasts without being called a pervert? Art class is a dream come true!


Temptation

Drawing a naked woman turns out to be no big deal. But the second test of faith proves more challenging. He becomes friends with a few students in his art class. And one gets a little too friendly. She’s willing to do more than kiss, something that Sophie isn’t ready for. Robin loves his girlfriend. But can he resist the temptation?


The Bottom Line

What My Girlfriend Doesn’t Know follows fourteen year-old Robin as he chooses between loyalty and temptation. Written in a series of poems, the story feels raw and real. Readers will get an inside look at Robin’s conflicting emotions—his excitement and lust, along with his fear and guilt. This book isn’t a long read, but it’s definitely enjoyable.

    • Nope. Never! It's just wrong.
    • Maybe, if my BF/GF wasn't treating me right.
    • I have, but I felt really bad and wouldn't do it again.
    • Yeah, why not? If no one finds out, it's okay.
