Emma-Jean Lazarus is a lovable oddball who thinks she can use logic to solve the messy everyday problems of her seventh-grade peers. It's easy - she just follows the example of her late father, a brilliant mathematician. Of course, the more Emma-Jean gets involved, the messier her own life gets. Suddenly, she's no longer the person standing on the outside of all social interactions. But perhaps that's a good thing?

Quirky, honest, and written by first-time author Lauren Tarshis, this is a tender story about what happens when a girl who has long stood in the social shadows gets a taste of what it's like to connect with kids her own age.

    " What a lovely book. Marvelous characters, terrific writing, story that's quirky, but not too quirky--believeably, endearingly quirky. A quick pleasant read that will stay with me. I want to hang out with this book and be its friend. "

    " This is a very sweet book about a girl who is a little different and she likes it that way. She is confident, intelligent and kind. She is an observer, and her observations of her 7th grade peers are non-judgmental. But when she tries to help Colleen with a problem regarding the typical mean girl in her school, things get a little out of hand. Emma-Jean falls out of a tree both literally and figuratively. And that fall changes everything. "

    " This is a quick read. Emma Jean is a cross between an older Junie B. Jones and Sheldon from Big Bang Theory! That should be enough to want to meet her! "
