“I knew the risks. All part of being on the quiz bowl team. Not everyone makes it back alive.”
Brian Katcher, The Improbable Theory of Ana and Zak

Amelia Alexander, 13, grade 8 Ada Schools, lifelong Ada resident

"The Improbable Theory of Ana and Zak," by Brian Katcher is Amelia Alexander’s favorite book.

Amelia explains, “It has tons of action and a love story and a coming of age story. It has something for everyone.” Ana and Zak find themselves on an out-of-this-world accidental first date during a quiz bowl tournament at a sci-fi convention. Ana is an honor student and Zak is a gamer. Over the course of the evening the pair are faced with working together to find Ana’s lost brother, themselves and possibly a teen romance.

Currently, Amelia Alexander is reading "The Invisible Life of Euridice Gusmao," by Martha Batalha, Eric M.B. Becker (translation), and five other books Amelia recommends are:

• Everyday by David Levithan (fiction)
• The Awakening of the Sunshine Girl by Paige McKenzie (fantasy, fiction)
• Ida B by Katherine Hannigan (juvenile fiction)
• The Accident Season by Moira Fowley-Doyle (young adult fiction)
• Wonder by R. J. Palacio (juvenile fiction)
