|A novel about a pair of sisters, one of whom is a "math genius". The title refers to the fact that she thinks "eyecue" is a disease when she first hears as a child that she has a high one and warns her sister to stay away. Much of the book seems to take place when the sisters are older and have "life issues" to deal with. It seems that the genius sister is the narrator and that she off-handedly mentions things like that 6 is the smallest perfect number.
Thanks to CofC student Kyra Robinson for bringing this book to my attention.
