Sophie says sorry – a lot. She says it so much, her schoolmates call her Sorry Sophie.

It doesn’t matter what mistake, mayhem, or misery she creates, Sophie blurts out a quick sorry and thinks she’s made everything right. When she gobbles up all the cookies that were meant to be shared with her little brother, she shouts sorry and moves on. When a magnifying glass is shattered because of her carelessness, she offers a casual sorry and escapes consequences. Sophie uses the word like a get out of jail free card.

But what happens when she turns Emelia’s much-loved birthday present into a shredded, deflated mess? Emelia doesn’t want to hear the same-old sorry from Sophie. She expects more than just talk. She wants Sophie to make it right.

Now Sophie is stuck. If saying sorry is no longer enough, how can she make things right? Is there a resolution that will satisfy everyone? More importantly, how can Sophie repair all the hurt she caused her friend?

With colourful illustrations and a plot that young children will easily relate to, award-winning author and school counsellor Jeff Tucker reminds readers that everybody makes mistakes, but how you respond afterward is what matters and makes all the difference. A special page written specifically for parents and educators offers practical tips on helping children use restorative practices to resolve conflicts, repair relationships, build empathy, and be accountable.
