The Boy Problem (Notes and Predictions by Tabitha Reddy) Written by Kami Kinard #booklovers #scholastic

Available April 29th!
The Boy Problem by Kami Kinard
Eighth grader Tabitha "Tabbi" Reddy believes in signs. Like fortune cookies. Magic 8-Balls. Shooting stars. And this year, she hopes, looking for the right signs will lead her to the right boy! Inspired by her BFF, Kara (star of THE BOY PROJECT), Tabbi starts her own "project" in the hopes of finding a cute crush. With the help of a math lesson on probability, Tabbi tries to predict who the right boy for her might be! Where is she most likely to meet him? What is he most likely to look like? Full of fun illustrations, hilarious equations, and lessons in cupcake-baking, life, love, and friendship, this book has a 100% probability of awesomeness.

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.
