The Absolute Value of Mike
by Kathryn Erskine

Sunday, March 15, 5:30 pm

Mike tries so hard to please his father, but the only language his dad seems to speak is calculus.  And for a boy with a math learning disability, nothing could be more difficult.  His dad sends him to rural Pennsylvania for the summer to work on an engineering project, but instead, he finds himself part of a town-wide project to adopt a boy from Romania while working alongside his wacky eighty-something-year-old aunt, a homeless man, and a punk-rock girl.  Mike might not learn anything about engineering, but what he does learn is far more valuable.  1 teenage boy + 1 crazy town + 3 weeks – $40,000 . . . you do the math.
