Welcome to my stop in the blog tour for The Square Root Of Summer! This is such an interesting story that does a really good job of combining romance with theoretical physics. I know that sounds weird, but its 100% true. Here’s a little bit about the book:
This is what it means to love someone. This is what it means to grieve someone. It's a little bit like a black hole. It's a little bit like infinity.
Gottie H. Oppenheimer is losing time. Literally. When the fabric of the universe around her seaside town begins to fray, she's hurtled through wormholes to her past:
To last summer, when her grandfather Grey died. To the afternoon she fell in love with Jason, who wouldn't even hold her hand at the funeral. To the day her best friend Thomas moved away and left her behind with a scar on her hand and a black hole in her memory.
Although Grey is still gone, Jason and Thomas are back, and Gottie's past, present, and future are about to collide—and someone's heart is about to be broken.
A few months ago, I was asked to answer a set of questions and then file them away until May. It was a sort of short-term virtual time capsule. Then a few days ago, I answered the questions again. How much can things change in a few months? Well, it was kind of a mixed bag. Some things changed and others probably won’t ever change.
After you’re done checking out my answers, you can enter for a chance to win a finished copy AND you should definitely go and check out the cool time capsule feature at Fierce Reads!
