A timely novel about the price of perfection from the author of Girl Out of Water.
Ariel Stone is the perfect college applicant. But a failed calculus quiz threatens his valedictorian standing and sends him into a tailspin. He reluctantly — secretly — gets a tutor.
Amir and Ariel have never gotten along, but Amir excels in calculus, and Ariel is low on options. Their time together goes better than expected, and soon, their relationship ventures beyond textbooks.
Except throwing himself into calculus and a burgeoning romance detracts Ariel's attention from his other classes. Ariel could lose everything he's worked his whole life to achieve. But how much is Ariel willing to sacrifice in the name of academic perfection?
'A wonderful, cute read that had me rooting for Anise till the very end. Will be highly recommending!' — Teresa Steele, Old Firehouse Books
