Long Story Short: A Novel

No reviews

"Like the best of the Bard himself, Long Story Short combines dazzling repartee with iconic, nuanced characters and the kind of charged, perfectly paced romance fit for the world stage...a sparkling Shakespearean homage and a wonderful debut." --Emily Wibberley and Austin Siegemund-Broka, authors of Always Never Yours

In Serena Kaylors sparkling debut, a homeschooled math genius finds herself out of her element at a theater summer camp and learns that life--and love--cant be lived by the (text)book.

Growing up homeschooled in Berkeley, California, Beatrice Quinn has always dreamed of discovering new mathematical challenges at Oxford University. She always thought the hardest part would be getting in, not convincing her parents to let her go. But while math has always made sense to Beatrice, making friends is a problem she hasnt been able to solve. Before her parents will send her halfway across the world, she has to prove she wont spend the next four years hiding in the library. The compromise: the Connecticut Shakespearean Summer Academy and a detailed list of teenage milestones to check off. If Beatrice wants to live out her Oxford dream, she has to survive six weeks in the role of "normal teenager" first.

Unfortunately, hearts and hormones dont follow any equations. When shes adopted by a group of eclectic theater kids, and immediately makes an enemy of the popular--and annoyingly gorgeous--British son of the camps founders, Beatrice quickly learns that relationships are trickier than calculus. With her future on the line, this girl genius stumbles through illicit parties, double dog dares, and more than her fair share of Shakespeare. But before the final curtain falls, will Beatrice realize theres more to life than what she can find in the pages of a book?
