Companion novel to THE BOY PROJECT.

Eighth grader Tabitha "Tabbi" Reddy believes in signs. Like fortune cookies. Magic 8-Balls. Shooting stars. And this year, she hopes, looking for the right signs will lead her to the right boy! Inspired by her BFF, Kara (star of THE BOY PROJECT), Tabbi starts her own "project" in the hopes of finding a cute crush. With the help of a math lesson on probability, Tabbi tries to predict who the right boy for her might be! Where is she most likely to meet him? What is he most likely to look like? Full of fun illustrations, hilarious equations, and lessons in cupcake-baking, life, love, and friendship, this book has a 100% probability of awesomeness.

“For any spirited, entrepreneurial teen that’s ever had a crush, this sweet read is sprinkled with lessons on life, love, and business.”

Kirkus Reviews

“Young female readers will find this a realistic presentation of typical teenage angst including young love, jealous rivals, and problem parents. The language is very readable, the characters are believable, the issues are current and the illustrations of the various probability charts make the point.”

Library Media Connection:


“Full of asides about classmates and the kind of detailed gossip only 11-to-13-year-olds can truly follow,this giddy, giggly book reads like a diary and is aimed at tween girls who like their literature frothy. Tabbi,short for Tabitha, is a middle-school student looking for the right guy, a crush who will elevate her status and help her put aside the feeling she is just a third wheel when she hangs out with her bestie Kara and Kara’s boyfriend, Chip. But how is she going to find the guy of her dreams? Tabbi is sure that everything, from the cheese that slid off her pizza and formed the shape of a male face (well, kind of) to a Magic 8 Ball, will predict her future. Stick-figure drawings, charts, and lists break up the text and give Tabbi’s story a Diary of a Wimpy Kid vibe… those who love romance will gobble it up.”
