Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
I thought fifth grade at the middle school was going to make perfect sense. But now I'm not so sure. Besides writing poems in science and following the "no drawing" rule in art, we have to keep a journal...in math! Our teacher, Mr. Vann, says a math journal is a place to tackle challenging problems and process deep thinking. All I know is that it's a place where I can draw. When Mika's neat life starts getting messy, she realizes there are no easy answers and maybe Mr. Vann is on to something. Maybe a math journal can help you work out your problems, and not just the math ones. And maybe, when you have help from friends, family, and one unique teacher, it's okay that life's not nearly as predictable as numbers. Debut author Jennifer Swender delivers poignant prose and illustrator Jennifer Naalchigar brings Mika's journal to life in this perfect equation of honesty pluys hope that adds up to a heartwarming coming-of-age story. -- From dust jacket.
