Her books have been honored with a Christopher Award, the Myra Cohn Livingston Poetry Award, and the Claudia Lewis Award for Poetry.

Advance praise for The Hunchback of Neiman Marcus:

“Funny, fresh, and heartbreakingly poignant, this book had me laughing and crying at the same time.  Thank you, Sonya Sones, for finally saying what so many of us have been thinking for so long.”

- Meg Cabot, author of The Princess Diaries series and Insatiable


“[An] entertaining novel-in-verse that will have readers clamoring for more. Sones, a beloved and wildly popular YA novelist, brings poetry to life for readers, especially parents of teens and those coping with elder care, in this cleverly versified, insightful laughter-and-tears novel.”—Booklist
