Charlie Hanson has a clear vision of his future. A senior at Brighton School of Mathematics and Science, he knows he'll graduate, go to MIT, and inevitably discover solutions to the universe's greatest unanswered questions. He's that smart. But Charlie's future blurs the moment he reaches out to touch the tattoo on a beautiful girl's neck. The future has never seemed very kind to Charlotte Finch, so she's counting on the present. She's not impressed by the strange boy at the donut shop--until she learns he's a student at Brighton where her sister has just taken a job as the English teacher. With her encouragement, Charlie orchestrates the most effective prank campaign in Brighton history. But, in doing so, he puts his own future in jeopardy. By the time he learns she's ill--and that the pranks were a way to distract Ms. Finch from Charlotte's illness--Charlotte' gravitational pull is too great to overcome. Soon he must choose between the familiar formulas he's always relied on or the girl he's falling for (at far more than 32 feet per second squared).

Such a heartfelt novel. Charlie who is a very bright student who excels in math and science but at the same time is very oblivious and awkward when it comes to social situations making him very relatable. The book follows Charlie falling in love with Charlotte a girl with brain cancer. Their love story is fun to read because it’s a believable and relatable relationship since they don't feel the need to speed through it, they just take their time and have fun with it. Overall really enjoyed the book and would reread it. Also can’t wait to read Life After Juliet-the companion novel-by Shannon Lee Alexander that follows Becca. Rating 5 stars. - @Fallenangelhushhush of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library
