ARC Arrival and a Giveaway! - Life After Genius

Life After Genius by M. Ann Jacoby

Publisher: Hachette Book Group

Theodore "Mead" Fegley has always been the smartest person he knows. By age twelve, he was in high school, and by fifteen he was attending a top-ranked university. Now, at age eighteen, he's on the verge of proving the Reimann Hypothesis, an equation that has mystified mathematicians for years. But only days before graduation, Mead suddenly flees home to rural Illinois. What has caused him to run remains a mystery to all but Mead and a classmate whose quest for success has turned into a dangerous obsession.

As Mead embarks on a new life's journey--learning the family business of selling furniture and embalming the dead--he'll discover a surprising truth: that the heart may know what the head has yet to learn. (Back cover)

I have 5 copies of this book to give away courtesy of Hachette Books!

*waving to Kristi!!*

I love the sound of this book's premise and would love to read it :). I come from a mathematically oriented family, so I'm intrigued by the personality of the main character, the math element, and the journey--to Illinois, no less! (Though probably more serious in tone, I really enjoyed "A Beautiful Mind," too...)

Hope you're having a wonderful week!!
