A lightning strike gave her a super power…but even a super genius can’t solve the problem of middle school. This smart and funny novel is perfect for fans of The Fourteenth Goldfish, Rain Reign, and Counting by Sevens.

Lucy Callahan’s life was changed forever when she was struck by lightning. She doesn’t remember it, but the zap gave her genius-level math skills, and she’s been homeschooled ever since. Now, at 12 years old, she’s technically ready for college. She just has to pass 1 more test—middle school!

Lucy’s grandma insists: Go to middle school for 1 year. Make 1 friend. Join 1 activity. And read 1 book (that’s not a math textbook!). Lucy’s not sure what a girl who does calculus homework for fun can possibly learn in 7th grade. She has everything she needs at home, where nobody can make fun of her rigid routines or her superpowered brain. The equation of Lucy’s life has already been solved. Unless there’s been a miscalculation?

A celebration of friendship, Stacy McAnulty’s smart and thoughtful middle-grade debut reminds us all to get out of our comfort zones and embrace what makes us different.

“Fresh story, great characters, a winner!”—Barbara O’Connor, author of Wish

Strong hardcover sales! We’ve net 35,000 copies so far!

Strong commercial appeal from the energetic voice, middle school antics, and shelter dog plotline.

Three starred reviews and great educational opportunity from the math (STEM connection!) and middle school issues.

Timed with (and will tease) a new stand alone hardcover, My World Ends in April (which is also a commercial read with STEM themes).

Author opportunity. Stacy is active on social media, with school and skype visits, and has a great STEM story as a former engineer.

Neuro-diversity: Lucy has OCD—a plotline Stacy handles with care (she met with experts and got authenticity reads).

Stacy McAnulty is the author of many books for young readers, including her newest middle grade, My World Ends in April, chapter book series The Dino Files and GoldieBlox and picture books including Excellent Ed, 101 Reasons Why I’m NOT Taking a Bath, and Beautiful. A former engineer, Stacy writes about math and science with authority. Visit her online at stacymcanulty.com or follow her on social media at:
