As Annabel desperately tries to solve the math problem that will improve her failing grade, her adoring younger sister, April, comes up with an unorthodox solution. In the story's 1950s setting there is but one supreme math tutor, and April sets her plan in motion. Dru Fereday narrates with the earnestness of 7-year-old April. Fereday effectively projects a younger sister's admiration when Annabel lets April sample chocolate chips from the cookie dough, despair when Annabel jettisons an important letter, and elation when the girls share a secret with Einstein. Fereday also tells the facts of Einstein's early life his and arrival in America in a clear and straightforward manner. A.R. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/ MAY 07]
