This week’s selection: The Miscalculations of Lightning Girl by Stacy McAnulty

Lucy Callahan was struck by lightning. She doesn’t remember it, but it changed her life forever. The zap gave her genius-level math skills, and ever since, Lucy has been homeschooled. Now, at 12 years old, she’s technically ready for college. She just has to pass 1 more test–middle school!

Lucy’s grandma insists: Go to middle school for 1 year. Make 1 friend. Join 1 activity. And read 1 book (that’s not a math textbook!). Lucy’s not sure what a girl who does calculus homework for fun can possibly learn in 7th grade. She has everything she needs at home, where nobody can make fun of her rigid routines or her superpowered brain. The equation of Lucy’s life has already been solved. Unless there’s been a miscalculation?

Stacy McAnulty is the author of many books for young readers, including chapter book series and picture books. The Miscalculations of Lightning Girl is her middle-grade debut. A former mechanical engineer, Stacy writes about math and science with authority. She lives in Kernersville, NC.

Book Club Leader Anna Shartzer has been a reading specialist, instructional coach, teacher and most recently bookseller. Her eighteen year career has been all about encouraging reading and readers. She has founded three children’s book clubs and has helped to lead sessions on more than thirty titles. She is passionate about engaging readers, supporting them in making connections and creating a fun environment for young book lovers.
