About the Book
A Confounded Sophomore, book two in the These Four Years series, centers around Sophie Shelton's presence in her sorority, Alpha Nu, as well as her love for Ryan and Steven.
Nineteen-year- old Sophie returns to the University of Miami for a confusing and complicated sophomore year. She moves into Alpha Nu and it isn't what it seems. She must continue to navigate the politics of Alpha Nu... all while living under their roof. Sophie chooses Ryan, but her feelings linger for Steven. She doesn't have a clear choice of who she wants, or what she wants within her sorority, as well as in her academic career. The year leaves her confounded and stressed, but also falling deeper in love.
