Beauty meets brains in this zany middle-grade novel!

Aphrodite Wigglesmith is a thirteen-year-old math prodigy. And now that she's graduated from Harvard, she returns home to teach the remedial math class at her old middle school. She's out to prove a bold theory: Anyone can be a math genius with the right instruction. Enter Mindy Loft, a pretty (ditzy) baton twirler in Aphrodite's class, who might just be the world's worst math student. The two seem destined to be archenemies, but somewhere between the studying and the shopping the two become friends. They're an unlikely pair, but in this uproarious middle-grade comedy, wacky is the norm and anything is possible--just like in middle school.
