Author Events at Phillips Middle

Stacy McAnulty comes to Phillips Middle to talk about The Miscalculations of Lightning Girl

Wednesday, May 2nd

Lucy Callahan was struck by lightning.

She doesn’t remember it, but it changed her life forever. The zap gave her genius-level math skills, and ever since, Lucy has been homeschooled. Now, at 12 years old, she’s technically ready for college. She just has to pass 1 more test—middle school!

Lucy’s grandma insists:

Go to middle school for 1 year.
Make 1 friend.
Join 1 activity.
And read 1 book (that’s not a math textbook!).


Lucy’s not sure what a girl who does calculus homework for fun can possibly learn in 7th grade. She has everything she needs at home, where nobody can make fun of her rigid routines or her superpowered brain. The equation of Lucy’s life has already been solved. Unless there’s been a miscalculation?
