Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:
Mona Gray, a young second grade teacher who orders her universe with tidy numbers, finds chaos and romance with an odd new math teacher. A first novel.

Review:
"[E]xasperating and charming in about equal measure...Sometimes this young author's tale of young people, chronicled by a young narrator, just feels young. Sometimes it is exuberantly, heartbreakingly youthful."

Kirkus, 04/15/2000

Review:
"...Aimee Bender establishes from the outset a tone of casual, offhand intimacy, but the fairy tale-like parable, whose themes are mortality, self-sacrifice and dismemberment, is not so simple...."

Richard Bernstein, New York Times, 07/26/2000

Book Description: Bantam Doubleday Dell Publishing Group Inc, United States, 2001. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 204 x 133 mm. Brand New Book. Aimee Bender s stunning debut collection, The Girl in the Flammable Skirt, proved her to be one of the freshest voices in American fiction. Now, in her first novel, she builds on that early promise. Mona Gray was ten when her father contracted a mysterious illness and she became a quitter, abandoning each of her talents just as pleasure became intense. The only thing she can t stop doing is math: She knocks on wood, adds her steps, and multiplies people in the park against one another. When Mona begins teaching math to second-graders, she finds a ready audience. But the difficult and wonderful facts of life keep intruding. She finds herself drawn to the new science teacher, who has an unnerving way of seeing through her intricately built facade. Bender brilliantly directs her characters, giving them unexpected emotional depth and setting them in a calamitous world, both fancifully surreal and startlingly familiar.
