Cover Reveal: Love and Other Unknown Variables by Shannon Lee Alexander

Love and Other Unknown Variables
by Shannon Lee Alexander
Release Date:  10/07/14
Entangled Teen

Charlie Hanson has a clear vision of his future. A senior at Brighton School of Mathematics and Science, he knows he'll graduate, go to MIT, and inevitably discover the solutions to the universe's greatest unanswerable problems. He's that smart.

The future has never seemed very kind to Charlotte Finch, so she's counting on the present. She would rather sketch with charcoal pencils, sing in her pitch-perfect voice, or read her favorite book than fill out a college application.

Charlie's future blurs the moment he meets Charlotte. She's not impressed by the strange boy until she learns he's a student at Brighton where her sister has just taken a job. At Charlotte's request, Charlie orchestrates the biggest prank campaign in Brighton history. But by the time Charlie learns Charlotte is ill and that the pranks were a way to distract her sister from Charlotte's illness, Charlotte's gravitational pull on him is too great to overcome. Soon he must choose between the familiar formulas he's always relied on or the girl he's falling for (at far more than 32 feet per second).

Shannon Lee Alexander is a wife, mother (of two kids and one yellow terrier named Harriet Potter).  She is passionate about coffee, books, and cancer research.  Math makes her break out in a sweat.  Love and Other Unknown Variables is her debut novel.  She currently lives in Indianapolis with her family.  You can follow her at or on Twitter @shanlalexander.

Here is the moment when I get a little sappy.  Shannon is one of my oldest friends - we have known each other since we were 11 years old, so I can't even begin to describe how happy I am for her and how honored I am to be a part of her journey.  I've seen what this amazing woman can do and trust me, you are going to want to read this book!  Congratulations, Shannon - you deserve all the exclamation marks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
