What Do You Do When the Math Just Doesn't Add Up?

Join us for the launch of True Love and Other Impossible Odds, the stunning new YA title by by CHRISTINA LI! In this cute and calculating book, we learn that, no matter how hard we may want the numbers to add up, sometimes the heart has its own equations to work out! CHRISTINA LI will be joined in conversation by CHLOE GONG, author of Foul Heart Huntsman, and TASHIE BHUIYAN, author of Stay With My Heart.

In True Love and Other Impossible OddsGrace Tang is navigating her first year of college. She's worked out a predictable formula: attend class, study, go home and visit her dad every weekend. Repeat. There’s no room in her life for outliers or anomalies. Ever since her mom passed away and she wrecked her only friendship, this is the best way she knows to make it through. An outlier comes anyway when Grace is assigned a project in statistics class, and she comes up with the idea to create an algorithm to pair students with their perfect romantic partner. People are skeptical, like her coworker in the campus library, Julia. But Grace is confident in her calculations, and so she keeps trying to make things work with her “perfect” match, a guy named Jamie. But as the semester goes on and she grows closer to Julia, Grace starts to question who she’s really attracted to...
