Book Blitz: Love and Other Unknown Variables by Shannon Alexander

***First, I'd like to apologise for not being very active. I have just gone back to school after the mid-term holidays, and so I am a bit busier. I will work out a schedule to fit in this blog though, but for now, let me make it up to you with this awesome book blitz!***


Written by the amazing and talented Shannon Alexander!

This beautiful novel was released on the 10th of July, 2014 and it'd fall upon the genre of teenage reads.

Summary {GoodReads}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’s 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).

Now, for an exclusive excerpt from the novel:

Charlotte takes a deep breath that hitches as it travels up her spine like it’s catching on
snags along the way. “I’m not used to sharing. It’s always been easiest to keep things close.”
I want to know what things she’s keeping so close. I want her to unpack them from inside
herself, perhaps making room for...what? For me? This is ludicrous. I should hand her back her
sketches and walk away.
I push my own notebook toward her instead. “It’s only fair.”
She chuckles and glances down at the open page. “What’s this?” Her voice is soft beside
me. She’s pointing at the problem I was working on moments ago. In it, I’ve had to use the
symbol for infinity, but I drew her tattoo instead. I didn’t even realize I’d done it.
“Trying to figure me out, Mr. Hanson? Think you’ll get extra credit?”
“I—” I’ve got nothing to say. I stare at the symbol I’ve drawn with the word hope bound
up in its endlessness. There are many ideas in mathematics that we know are true, even if we’ll
never be able to solve them. Too many. They’re the paradoxes that make math so beautiful.
Charlotte feels like that. Like a problem I’ll never really figure out, but that I know is just
right for me.
She leans her shoulder into mine. “You and me, Charlie, we’re on the same team—both
artists. We just work with different mediums.”
Charlie’s brain definitely lights up when he sees a beautiful math problem. Do you have a
favorite math equation or scientific theory? How about a piece of music or art that moves
