The back of neck tingled with the sense of someone looking at me. (from the first line)
While grieving the death of her grandmother in 1959, teenager Anna is torn between her aspirations to study math in college and her familys expectations that she will marry and become a homemaker after high school. *Author: Moranville, Sharelle Byars *Publication Date: 2006/05/02 *Number of Pages: 224 *Binding Type: School And Library *Grade Level: 10-12 *Language: English *Depth: 1.00 *Width: 5.25 *Height: 8.00
From the Publisher:
In the 1950s, math whiz Anna Conway longs to go to college and study mathematics until she meets Mike, with whom she falls in love, forcing her to choose between their relationship or following her dreams.
Anna loves math, and her boyfriend, Mike. Will she have to choose between them?||
Anna Conway sometimes wishes her relationships would come as easy to her as math does. A natural math talent, Anna is at odds with what’s expected of her as a teenager in the 1950s. While Anna aspires to leave her small town for college to study mathematics, her parents want her to follow the more traditional path of getting married and starting a family. Anna’s never really thought of dating before, but when she meets Mike, their relationship takes off and goes further than she’d ever expected. Now it’s up to Anna to make her future happen. But how will she choose?
 
In beautiful prose, Sharelle Byars Moranville explores the importance of believing in dreams in order to make a difference.||
Annotation:
Traditional notions of femininity, incredible math skills, and first love are intertwined in this tender coming-of-age story set in rural 1959 America. Excellent at math, but hemmed in by the conservative values of her parents and the time, 15-year-old Anna Conway desperately hopes that her father will allow her to attend college. At the same time, she's still grieving over the loss of her cherished grandmother, Meema, and she finds herself unexpectedly falling in love with Mike, a classmate. The depth of their connection, Anna's passionate desire for higher education, and the struggle with her family's vision for her future are all at the heart of this stirring young-adult novel.

Praise

"Anna's strength...is vivid and natural in this first-person narrative. The mathematics is elegantly and clearly described, and her relationship with Mike is lovely. He supports and admires her, they have sex (mostly offstage) and it neither ruins her life nor directs it. A terrific teen read." 05/01/2006
