Sophie lives in a world full of dreams which she does not know she cannot realize. Comment.
The chapter Going Places begins with Sophie telling Julie that one day she would have a boutique or be an actress. If she ever becomes as actress, she would have the boutique on the side as actresses don’t work full time. This clearly shows that Sophie loves living in a world of dreams. Perhaps we can take these dreams as being achievable ones. But her fantasy about the football player Danny Casey shows us that she lives completely lost in her world of fantasy. She strongly believes that she has met Danny Casey despite people not believing in her words. She is so deeply lost in her world of dreams that she does not even doubt her capability of achieving them. Towards the end of the chapter, we see her imagination getting a boost when she sees Danny Casey crisply striking the ball into the goal.
