|This is a novel for young adults about a half Asian teenager who is sent to a summer Math Camp at Stanford by her overprotective mother. She enjoys the camp more than she expected to, until her mother arrives to make sure she is not having too much fun.
Clearly, this is more about the protagonist's insecurities about her own mixed heritage than about math, but it is still nice to see math playing a positive role in her life.
Thanks to John. C. Konrath for suggesting that it be added to the database.

Exciting News: The total number of works of mathematical fiction listed in this database recently reached a milestone. The 1,500th entry is The Man of Forty Crowns by Voltaire. Thanks to Vijay Fafat for writing the summary of that work (and so many others). I am also grateful to everyone who has contributed to this website. Heck, I'm grateful to everyone who visited the site. Thank you!
