The Improbable Theory of Ana and Zak: 08/05/18

The Improbable Theory of Ana and Zak

The Improbable Theory of Ana and Zak by Brian Katcher takes place over the course of a weekend. It's supposed to be a "he said, she said" romance, but it's really just another tale of an idiotic, entitled white dude getting his way.

Zak is caught plagiarizing on a big assignment. To make amends for this, his teacher tells him he has to join the Academic Quiz team for the semifinals. Unfortunately for him it happens during the big comic convention in Seattle. Sure, he'll be in the right city, but he'll be stuck at the quiz.

Ana and her brother Clayton are the two stars of the school's quiz team. Amy is an over achieving, high strung teen who among other things is an archer. Because of her archery, idiot Zak gets the idea that she's some hot escape from one of his comics.

Long story short, the book ends up being Ferris Bueller's Day Off type story but told from both Zak's point of view and Ana's. There is no romance here unless you've been brainwashed by the white cis het male idea that women are there to be pursued and conquered.
