In NC, we are so very lucky to have authors for neighbors. I assume that’s true all over the world, but I’m guessing I’d just never thought about it before I became a (very active) librarian.
I met Stacy McAnulty several years ago. I was asked to be her escort at one of our NCSLMA conferences, and I’ve been lucky enough to meet up with her again on several occasions. One of the things I love about Stacy is that she was an engineer! The math teacher in me immediately bonded to another lover of numbers and words. So, I jumped at the chance to go see her talk about her latest book, The Miscalculations of Lightning Girl, at Bookmarks.
Meet Lucy, a middle school mathematical savant. Lucy was struck by lightening and developed quite a few oddities. She’s a mathematical genius, OCD, and not very good with people. And her grandmother is forcing her to go to middle school when she should be going to the university. Will there be enough disinfectant wipes to protect her from all the germs in a middle school? Will she make even one friend? How does a genius fit in? Lucy is filled with fear as she starts her adventure, and you are going to love watching her maneuver her way through situation after situation.
