Grace has a bad case of OCD. She counts things, everything in fact, and it has made her, effectively, a recluse. How did she get this way? Her hero is Nikola Tesla. They share something. One day at the supermarket, short one banana at the checkout, she swipes one from the guy behind her on line to make a perfect 10, and thus begins her adventure.
This is a wonderful, charming novel. It will make you smile and occasionally laugh out loud. Jordan had written a character study that is both attractive and frightening. And the man in Grace’s life is a wonder. It is not exactly War and Peace, but it is an excellent, entertaining and moving small novel. You might pick up some nifty information about Nicola Tesla as well.
