Love and Other Unknown Variables

Love and otherLove and Other Unknown Variables

By: Shannon Lee Alexander

What if the equation for love doesn’t quite compute?

Charlie Hanson has his future all planned out. He’s a super smart senior and upon graduation he’ll be MIT bound. There doesn’t seem to be any problem that Charlie can’t solve. Yeah, he’s that smart. But his future drastically changes the moment he reaches out to touch the tattoo on a beautiful girl’s neck.

This wonderful YA book has it all. The pages are filled with sweeping arcs of emotion that will leave the reader wanting more. From laugh out loud moments of awkwardness (relatable to us all on some level) to very serious tones regarding love, health and determination. Local author Shannon Lee Alexander does an incredible job throughout the story of holding the readers interest with dynamic pace, wonderful character development and fascinating storytelling. 4 out of 5 stars!
