Middle Grade Book Review

Hello! My name is Gianna and I am one of the L.B. Anne summer interns. Today I am assigned to blog my latest read. This week I read The Miscalculations of Lightning Girl by Stacy McAnulty.

The Miscalculations of Lightning Girl is about a girl named Lucy Callahan. Though she doesn't remember, she was struck by lightning. Somehow, she survived. The lightning gave her genius-level math skills, and she’s been homeschooled ever since. Now, at the age of 12, her grandmother enrolled her in middle school to spend time with kids her age.

Lucy decided she wanted to keep her math skills private. She also had ADHD and didn't want anyone to find out, so she didn't want to go back to school. She thought people would bully her for being smart.

I'm not going to spoil it for you. You will have to read it to find out how it ends.

I would rate this book an 8.5 out of 10 stars. Perhaps more. It was full of humor. I recommend this book for ages 9-13.

Thank you, L. B. Anne, for letting me step into the world of writing!

Gianna S.
