This book was a quick, fun read---and an interesting twist on middle-school realistic fiction. The protagonist is an eighth-grade math geek who applies math principles to friendships, school issues, ethical problems, family relationships. Generally, it rang true---quirky, but not over-the-top cute. I can't decide what I think about the suicide?/murder? plot. It does seem pretty dark for a book about middle schoolers, but then that's the age when kids tend to encounter real grown-up issues and have to figure out what to think about them.
