Unconventional math nerd Tally and her best friends Sonnet and Spider are sure the seventh grade trip to Washington, DC will be a disaster. To foster class unity, the teachers have assigned the kids to share rooms with their enemies.
But the three-day trip is full of surprises. Alliances are made and broken, and Tally makes an uneasy peace with her roommate, head “clonegirl” Ava Seeley.
Soon Tally begins to suspect something is off with Ava, who keeps a weird notebook full of random numbers, disappears regularly, and doesn’t seem to be eating anything during meals. When Tally confronts Ava about it all, Ava threatens to share an embarrassing picture of Tally with the class if she tells anyone about her suspicions.
For the first time Tally doesn’t have an easy solution to an incredibly complex equation. This is a trip full of lessons Tally won’t forget, including how to love yourself and embrace your flaws, and how being a good friend can actually mean telling a secret you promised to keep….
