Solving for Ex is a fun novel that will have your inner math geek out. Well, unless you’re like me and do not like anything Calculus related.
I think Ashley represents the typical teenage girl, and I love that she is so easy to relate to. I mean how many of us, at one time, didn’t have those confusing feelings when you like some one but they are completely oblivious. Brendan is definitely not seeing how much Ash likes him, even though pretty much everyone else gets it. I didn’t care for Sofia at all. She’s a serious pain in the butt, and doesn’t seem to get the hint. Vincent is tolerable. I never feel like I would be completely at ease with him.
The course of the book is over a period of a few months, but it doesn’t seem like it at all. You’re caught up in the whirlwind that is high school politics, and trying to figure out what you want. Also, some things are worth standing up for, you just have to know when it’s appropriate. I did absolutely love when Brendan and Ashely would get all crazy excited about solving math problems. It had me giggling.
If you’re wanting something that isn’t too heavy, but it funny, and sweet, you should definitely give Solving for Ex a try.
