Publisher's Summary

The book tells the story of Mika and how her illustrated math journal helps her cope with the challenges of middle school, math, and her mother's melanoma. 

When Mika starts fifth grade at the middle school, her neat life gets messy. Separated from old friends and starting new classes, Mika is far from her comfort zone. And math class is the most confusing of all, especially when her teacher Mr. Vann assigns math journals. Art in math? Who's ever heard of such a thing?

Must Read for Teachers

I highly recommend this book to young readers and old alike. I think it is an especially important read for teachers as demonstrates a creative approach to engaging young learners in higher order thinking and problem solving.

It would make an excellent novel study for students in years 4-6 as it contains interesting and challenging themes about family, illness and playing to your strengths.
