For fans of Rupi Kaur, Cleo Wade, and Amanda Lovelace, Someone Somewhere Maybe speaks to the joys and sorrows of finding your way as a young woman today.
Poignant and beautifully written, TikTok fan favorite Sophie Diener’s debut poetry collection takes readers on an introspective journey through first love, first heartbreak, first loss, identity, and self-worth. Filled with honesty and warmth, each poem reveals something new about the human condition, and brilliantly captures what growing up feels like, in a way that is both relatable and affirming.
Someone Somewhere Maybe is the perfect companion for a rainy day, curling up in bed with a cup of tea, sitting on the porch with a glass of lemonade, or lying on the beach watching the waves. It offers readers hope, healing, understanding, and the certainty that they are not alone.

Sophie Diener is a poet who writes about mental health, body image, loving, being loved, and getting our hearts broken. Someone Somewhere Maybe is her debut collection and it reads like a letter to all of the parts and pieces of her younger self. She recalls the high of falling in love as a teenager and the heartbreak of saying good-bye when leaving for college. Her poetry highlights the moments we long for reconnection and question whether or not the disconnection that occurred in important relationships could be our own unintentional making.
All of the obsessive and intrusive thoughts and feelings we wade through when we are healing from heartbreak are found within these beautiful pages. I enjoyed reading this collection and my favorite poem of all would probably be the p0em she writes to her eighteen year old self. For me, it is a reminder of the time in a girl's life when she leaves girlish things behind and embraces the journey of becoming a woman.
