The Isle of Math

The Isle of Math

by Kiele Takeuchi




It's official. Math is evil and Rachel Takahashi has proof. Meet the only math teacher in the world who hates math. Instead of teaching Hawaiian (her dream job), her employers are only interested in Rachel's other degree-math. And now her fiancé, Florian Davis, has returned from studying anthropology in Africa to announce that he's married. This is the final straw and Rachel decides to go swimming in a hurricane rather than returning to her hated job teaching math. But (you may have guessed) her tale doesn't end there. The horror continues. Rachel has miscalculated. She has not counted on or figured out the true dangers presented by the ocean's waves. She soon discovers that her problems have gone from obtuse to acute. And, when she washes ashore, like the sands on the beach, they seem infinite. Can Rachel keep her problems from multiplying exponentially or does she face infinite regression on the dreaded Isle of Math? Kiele Takeuchi is a former math major who finally saw the light and decided that she was meant for a career in journalism. This is her first of many novels.
