SciFi Geek meets School Goody Over Achiever, he likes her, she doesn't like him until .........
The Improbable Theory of Ana and Zak is one of those laugh out loud, quirky contemporaries with fantastic underlying messages that every contemporary junkie needs to read!
It’s a romantic comedy that is told in dual POV by two seemingly totally different people over the course of one day, set at a sci-fi themed convention (think Armageddon or any other geeky festivals)
When Zak is caught cheating on a paper he is roped into attending quiz bowl semi-finals headed by the perfectionist Ana Watson. By attending quiz bowl he is missing comic-con, something he has been invested in since he was ten. Zak can stop talking about comic-con and it drives Clayton, Ana's little brother, to sneak out of the hotel and catch a cab. Ana, with her strict parents, needs to find him before they find out. She teams up with Zak who knows comic con like the back of his hand and it turns out they have more in common than they thought.
This book has an incredibly quirky cast of characters and is such a treat! It is told over the span of one weekend (mostly over one night and through the next day), and is unlike any other books I've read. It made me laugh more often than not, and there were also parts that were really touching. I fell in love with Ana and Zak and their crazy adventures from page one, and it has easily become a favorite!
The Improbable Theory of Ana and Zak is a coming-of-age story that shows you that there are always two sides to a story, and that first-impressions aren’t always the impressions that are intended to stay, because everyone has more to them than what they appear to be on the surface.
