Stewart and his father are moving in with Ashley and her mother. Ashley is a stylish, shallow girl and Stewart enjoys Mathletes and scientific theories. Stewart is still trying to process the death of his mother, and Ashley can't even with Stewart's Stewart-ness. Chapters alternate between the main characters' viewpoints.
Geek plus cool student isn't exactly a new idea, but this author's voice is noticeably honest: she finds truth between crevices you hadn't examined carefully enough.
