Friday Memes: The Improbable Theory of Ana and Zak by Brian Katcher

Happy Friday everybody!!
Book Beginnings on Friday is now hosted by Rose City Reader. The Friday 56 is hosted at Freda's Voice. Check out the links above for the rules and for the posts of the participants each week. Don’t dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

This week I am spotlighting The Improbable Theory of Ana and Zak by Brian Katcher. I got this eARC from Edelweiss. Here is the description from GoodReads:
The Improbable Theory of Ana and Zak is Stonewall Book Award-winning author Brian Katcher’s hilarious he said/she said romance about two teens recovering from heartbreak and discovering themselves on an out-of-this-world accidental first date.

It all begins when Ana Watson's little brother, Clayton, secretly ditches the quiz bowl semifinals to go to the Washingcon sci-fi convention on what should have been a normal, résumé-building school trip.

If slacker Zak Duquette hadn't talked up the geek fan fest so much, maybe Clayton wouldn't have broken nearly every school rule or jeopardized Ana’s last shot at freedom from her uptight parents.

Now, teaming up with Duquette is the only way for Ana to chase down Clayton in the sea of orcs, zombies, bikini-clad princesses, Trekkies, and Smurfs. After all, one does not simply walk into Washingcon.

But in spite of Zak's devil-may-care attitude, he has his own reasons for being as lost as Ana-and Ana may have more in common with him than she thinks. Ana and Zak certainly don’t expect the long crazy night, which begins as a nerdfighter manhunt, to transform into so much more…
Zak! Hey, Zak, where are you?

The sound of my stepfather's voice fills me with dread. My mother is gone—we are alone.
Friday 56:
I have the beginnings of a glorious headache. 


  1. I like the sound of this one...thanks for sharing. Here's mine: “THE LIAR”

  2. This sounds like a delightful story. With all the weird characters at the sci-fi fest, I'm sure there are lots of opportunities for humor.
    My Friday post features DANCING AT THE RASCAL FAIR.

  3. I've heard somewhat about this book, so thanks for sharing about it.

  4. Such a fun cute cover and it sounds like a lot of laughs. I enjoy fun reads like this in the summer.

  5. Suffering from headaches myself, I can empathize with the 56. I'm intrigued by the beginning though. Doesn't sound like a good situation for the kid.
    Happy weekend!
