Do the Math: Secrets, Lies, and Algebra
by Wendy Lichtman
Friday, September 15, 4:30 pm

Tess loves math because it’s the one subject she can trust — there’s always just one right answer, and it never changes. But then she starts algebra and is introduced to those pesky and mysterious variables, which seem to be everywhere in eighth grade. When even your friends and parents can be variables, how in the world do you find out the right answers to the really important questions, like what to do about a boy you like or whom to tell when someone’s done something really bad?
