So, what's it about?

As some of you know, I've been pretty tight-lipped about My Life as a Rhombus. Most of this has less to do with me being secretive, and is more because I sound like a rambling idiot when I try to describe a book.

And anyway, what does someone really mean when they ask, "What's it about?" Are they asking about the plot, the theme, or what? But I digress...

The good people at Flux recently released their Winter Catalog, so now you can find out for yourself what the book is about (in addition, you can also scope out soon-to-be released books by Carrie Jones and Stacy DeKeyser, among others).

For those of you too lazy to click to the website, I've posted the catalog copy below:


Homework plus strawberry ice cream equals a typical night for high school senior and math whiz Rhonda Lee. Angling for a full scholarship to Georgia Tech, the pressure is on. And dating isn't part of the equation. Teenage boys are only after one thing, right? She should know considering her last boyfriend left her heartbroken . . . and pregnant.

At the time, an abortion seemed like Rhonda's only option. If it was the right decision, why is she filled with anger and regret? Will she ever trust another guy? Or forgive her overprotective father? And herself?

The last person Rhonda would ever expect to understand is Sarah Gamble, the richest and most popular girl at their South Carolina prep school. While tutoring Sarah in trigonometry, Rhonda discovers a secret about her that instantly draws them together. As Sarah's belly swells, a decision must be made. And Rhonda finds herself supporting a friend facing an all-too-familiar dilemma, even as Sarah makes an unexpected choice.

I love that you're tackling this issue. The 4th book in my series deals with sex/pregnancy. I was gun shy at first since my books always walk the line between earnest and light. But hopefully I've done it justice. Rhombus is already on my TBR list.

What a great flap copy, Varian. Andrew really got to the heart of the book. I'm excited for you!
