From award-winning YA author Melissa Keil comes this heartwarming contemporary novel about what it means to be extraordinary.

Joshua is good at magic tricks, ignoring his homework, and not thinking about life after year twelve. He's not so good at talking to Sophia, the genius in his class who he's had a crush on for years. But with their time together in high school running out, he has to do something about it, soon because if he's learned one thing, it's that timing is everything.

Sophia is smart enough to know that geniuses like her can end up as socially inept recluses. In fact, maybe she's halfway there already, what with the panic attacks and her best (and only) friend Elsie drifting away. All Sophia can do is seek refuge in what she understands best: maths, science, logic.

But there's no logical explanation for the odd, almost magical things happening around her. And there are some things no amount of study can prepare you for...
