Love and Other Variables by Shannon Lee Alexander Release Day Blitz and Review

Love and Other Variables
 by Shannon Lee Alexander
Release Date: October 7, 2014

Charlie Hanson has a clear vision of his 

future. A senior at Brighton School of 

Mathematics and Science, he knows he’ll 

graduate, go to MIT, and inevitably discover 

solutions to the universe’s greatest 

unanswered questions. He’s that smart. But 

Charlie’s future blurs the moment he reaches 

out to touch the tattoo on a beautiful girl’s 


The future has never seemed very kind to 

Charlotte Finch, so she’s counting on the 

present. She’s not impressed by the strange 

boy at the donut shop—until she learns he’s a 

student at Brighton where her sister has just 

taken a job as the English teacher. With her 

encouragement, Charlie orchestrates the 

most effective prank campaign in Brighton 

history. But, in doing so, he puts his own 

future in jeopardy. 

By the time he learns she's ill—and that the 

pranks were a way to distract Ms. Finch from 

Charlotte’s illness—Charlotte’s gravitational 

pull is too great to overcome. Soon he must 

choose between the familiar formulas he’s 

always relied on or the girl he’s falling for (at 

far more than 32 feet per second squared).

Shannon Lee Alexander is a wife and mother 

(of two kids and one yellow terrier named 

Harriet Potter). She is passionate about 

coffee, books, and cancer research. Math 

makes her break out in a sweat. Love and 

Other Unknown Variables is her debut novel. 

She currently lives in Indianapolis with her 


Love and other variables is a great coming of age and love story. It has such pureness about it I fell straight into the book.
You will meet Charlie Hanson. He has laid out his ENITRE future. He is a math lover and yes is very much a nerd in the book. He’s smart just not with women. Its funny seeing some of the aftermath after trying to get a girl. Charlie finds out he has a heart and his future he planned looks bleak for the first time ever.
He meets Charlotte Finch who takes him on a ride. She is carefree and a great artist. He also finds out that she is his teacher’s sister. The teacher is a whole other thing where the kids try to prank her to make her leave. Now Charlotte is sick but never tells Charlie. He finds out a completely different way and his reaction broke my heart.
I highly recommend this book. It has everything you need including an old lady who gives cryptic advice. It is truly an amazing journey watching Charlotte even though she knows her outcome.
I am giving this book 4.5 hearts.
