The more I touch someone, the more I can see and understand, and the more I think I can help. But that’s my mistake. I can’t help. You can’t fix people like you can solve a math problem.
Math genius. Freak of nature. Loner.
Eva Walker has literally one friend—if you don’t count her quadruplet three-year-old-siblings—and it’s not even because she’s a math nerd. No, Eva is a loner out of necessity, because everyone and everything around her is an emotional minefield. All she has to do is touch someone, or their shirt, or their cell phone, and she can read all their secrets, their insecurities, their fears.
Sure, Eva’s “gift” comes in handy when she’s tutoring math and she can learn where people are struggling just by touching their calculators. For the most part, though, it’s safer to keep her hands to herself. Until she meets six-foot-three, cute-without-trying Zenn Bennett, who makes that nearly impossible.
Zenn’s jacket gives Eva such a dark and violent vision that you’d think not touching him would be easy. But sometimes you have to take a risk…
Thank you so much to Kids Can Press for sending me a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
First off, I absolutely SUCK at math, so I definitely was not attracted to this book because it was about that subject, but I did find it intriguing. Not many YA books are written with that kind of plot, so that made it unique.
This is a super cute love story between two teenagers, but the one is unable to express any kind of affection as whatever she touches, she receives a ‘vision’ type occurrence (think something along the lines of That’s So Raven). The whole plot was such a fun idea and I could not for the life of me put this book down.
This is definitely a swoon-worthy novel that had me giggling along with the actions of both Eva and Zenn. The relationship between the two is connected in more ways than one, and even their little miscommunication points found and answer in the end.
I loved everything about this book, and it is the perfect read for anyone that is in a reading slump. A mathematics romance is the best pick-me-up for anyone!
