|Geometric chalk drawings have magical power in this Harry Potter-like book for teens. In fact, it takes place in an "alternate universe" where Earth's history is different. Since "Rithmatics" was discovered there prior to the industrial revolution, it is a world where chalk drawings are important and machines are very primitive.
The main character is Joel, the son of the chalk maker at an institute for training "rithmatists", who dreams of being able to perform magic like his friends at the academy. He gets his chance to try when disaster strikes and many of the students at the academy disappear.
