The Boy Problem by Kami Kinard
The 411 by Maria:
A book for girls about boys, cupcakes and math? Hmmmm can it work? It can! It totally can. Tabbi is an interesting girl. She is trying to figure out who her boyfriend is going to be by using basic mathematical calculations, fortune cookies and a Magic 8 Ball.
The author does a great job of not only telling a fun, middle school age appropriate story but ties in Facebook, texting, conversations, cupcake recipes, gluten issues, romance, math and even a few illustrations. Not a small feat to do all that and keep the reader interested and interested they will be!
Great job Kami! I will be mentioning this to the Middle School math teacher today.
