Seventeen-year-old Sophia is a math genius, so surely she'll be on easy street after graduation.
Except she's just learned child prodigies become either smash hits or total meltdowns after high school. Now with her BFF sending off college applications, Sophia's feeling the pressure to lock down her own future before she's left in the dust. But when mysterious playing cards keep turning up inside her textbooks, she's really thrown off course.
Joshua is Sophia's classmate: adorkable, charmingly carefree, and an amateur magician. He's crushed on Sophia for as long as he can remember. With a ton of romantic gestures up his sleeve, Joshua thinks now is the perfect time to tell Sophia how he feels. He doesn't know how very wrong he is.
Told in a dual narrative, this opposites-attract, young adult rom-com offers plenty of laughs as Joshua stumbles again and again to impress the most skeptical audience that magic has ever met: Sophia. But if Joshua truly cares for her, first he'll have to work on his timing and meet Sophia halfway. It'll take a scientific feat of magic to dazzle and bewilder the smartest girl at school.
