Publisher Comments:

From the author of the runaway bestseller Math Doesn't Suck, the next step in the math curriculum — pre-Algebra.

Last year, actress and math genius Danica McKellar made waves nationwide, challenging the math nerd stereotype and giving girls the tools to ace tests and homework in her unique just-us-girls style. Now, in Kiss My Math, McKellar empowers a new crop of girls — 7th to 9th graders taking on the next level of mathematics: pre-Algebra.

Stepping up not only the math, but also the sass and style, Kiss My Math will help math-phobic teenagers everywhere chill out about math, and finally get negative numbers, variables, absolute values, exponents, and more. Each chapter features:

Step-by-step instruction

Time-saving tips and tricks

Illuminating practice problems with detailed solutions

Real-world examples

True stories from Danica's own life as a student and actress

Kiss My Math also includes more fun extras — including personality quizzes, reader polls, and real-life testimonials — ultimately revealing why pre-Algebra is easier, more relevant, and more glamorous than girls think.

The New York Times bestseller-from the "Dancing With The Stars" contestant and popular author of Math Doesn't Suck, Hot X: Algebra Exposed, and Girls Get Curves-teaches girls how to kick pre-algebra butt

In her New York Times bestselling books, actress and math genius Danica McKellar shatters the "math nerd" stereotype and gives girls the tools to ace middle-school math in her unique, just- us-girls style. Now, in her second book, Kiss My Math, McKellar empowers a new crop of girls-seventh to ninth graders-to tackle the next level of mathematics: pre-algebra.

Stepping up not only the math but the sass and style, McKellar helps math-phobic teenagers moving up into high school chill out and finally "get" negative numbers, variables, absolute values, exponents, and more. As she did so effectively in Math Doesn't Suck, McKellar uses personality quizzes, reader polls, real-life testimonials, and stories from her own life-in addition to clear instruction, helpful tips, and practice problems-revealing why pre-algebra is easier, more relevant, and more glamorous than girls think. McKellar is clearly reaching her audience: parents, teachers, and especially girls are asking for more.
