Miranda Bloom is a mathematically talented girl trying to deal with normal teenage problems (family, boys, etc.) Although mental calculations have always come easy to Miranda, she does not appear to be particularly interested in mathematics, and resents praise and attention that her mathematical abilities bring her.

The second book in the series aimed at a teenage audience, Geek Abroad is a bit more mathematical than this first one.
