Her hero is Nikola Tesla They share something One day at the supermarket short one banana at the checkout she swipes one from the guy behind her on line to make a perfect 10 and thus begins her adventure This is a wonderful charming novel It will make you smile and occasionally laugh out loud Jordan had written a character study that is both attractive and frightening And the man in Grace’s life is a wonder It is not exactly War and Peace but it is an excellent entertaining and moving small novel You might pick up some nifty information about Nicola Tesla as well

    Epub salovehej.me Õ Addition PDF/EPUB ê addition kindle, Addition eBookTo be honest I struggled a bit at the beginning of this finding Grace's obsession with numbers and counting a little overwhelming and hard to follow But the story soon took over and the numbers just became background I ended up really enjoying this and loved the uirkiness and uniueness of Grace To me there was a message here that we are all different and all have our own way of thinking and doing things In the end it's the differences and little idiosyncrasies that make us who we are and there really isn't any one way to be normal Trying to change someone to fit into what society deems as normal just destroys the essence of that person and perhaps what first made them worth knowing As Grace herself says
