Solving for M

Written by Jennifer Swender, Illustrated by Jennifer Naalchigar

Mika just started 5th grade in middle school. Her life is changing rapidly, but surprisingly, her math class is what keeps her grounded. Her mom has a mole removed that is cancerous and the journey of this story is about how she quietly suffers through the stress of not knowing if her mom will be okay. She is able to make new friends and learns to enjoy things and people she didn’t before. The whole story is punctuated with Mika’s math journal entries, which she illustrates. You will look forward to how she journals this stressful time in her life with math and art. This is a delightful read!
