BC prof writes *math* novel for young adults

A very cool idea - I think I may have to pick this up.

The book, which he wrote in his spare time, is a story about a small-town girl in Nova Scotia who commits herself to representing her country at the International Math Olympiad.

Featuring a female protagonist was deliberate, he said. Hoshino said the young women he met when he was teaching in Nova Scotia – one of his many adventures– inspired him.
