|The story of a 13 year old girl living in rural Pennsylvania in 1934,
"Hannah" presents us with yet another fictional account of someone who is
not only talented in mathematics but also psychologically unstable, acting
upon her mathematical instincts in an obsessive-compulsive manner. In this
coming-of-age story written for 9-12 year old children, the focus is on
acceptance as the adults and other children around her learn to appreciate
Hannah and her "gift with numbers".
Thanks to Charles Freudenthal for suggesting this book be included in the
