The daughter of a blue-haired drama teacher starts connecting with her grouchy scientist grandfather. He’s got a Finnish fan club with 200 members, and he’s not shy about telling people it exists. As the main character starts to appreciate science, she also begins to question its power.
This is a charming story with quirky characters. It might be a little odd for some readers, but that's precisely what will make other readers complete devotees.
