It all began the Monday Mrs. Fibonacci said, “You know, you can think of almost everything as a math problem.” After that, everything was a problem. You wake up in the morning and start adding your shirts and counting your teeth and wondering how many flakes are in your cereal bowl. You get on the bus, and it’s as if there are five kids on the bus, and then five more get on, and then five more get on, and then, “True or false? What is the bus driver’s name?” There’s just no end to it.

Did you ever wake up to one of those days where everything is a problem? You have 10 things to do, but only 30 minutes until your bus leaves. Is there enough time? You have 3 shirts and 2 pairs of pants. Can you make 1 good outfit? Then you start to wonder: Why does everything have to be such a problem? Why do 2 apples always have to be added to 5 oranges? Why do 4 kids always have to divide 12 marbles? Why can't you just keep 10 cookies without someone taking 3 away? Why? Because you're the victim of a Math Curse. That's why. But don't despair. This is one girl's story of how that curse can be broken.---from the publisher
