Question: Sophie lives in a world full of dreams which she does not know she cannot realise. Comment. [CBSE (AI) 2015]

Answer: Sophie is a young girl from a lower-middle-class family. Though she has been earmarked to work in the biscuit factory, she dreams of opening a boutique and also becoming an actress or a fashion designer or a manager. She dreams of coming out of her economic situation. She is an incurable dreamer and an escapist. All her dreams and disappointments are figments of her own imagination. Although she is warned against such dreams by her friend, Jansie and her father she ignores them. As no one believes her, she shares her dreams only with her brother, Geoff, who is an introvert. She also worships the football player, Danny Casey. She fantasises about meeting Danny at the marketplace and later near the canal.
