The smart popular: "This one time, at nerd camp..."
The mathematical journey through the life of a single person--what would it take? How would she convert to the dark side of the maths?
I imagine her to be a bit uncomfortable with herself before discovering her true identity as a nerd (maybe a mathie?)
Nerds need to come out too.
Takes place during high school years, with most of action in the mode of self-discovery.
-> She actually has friends, but many (remember, she was liked!) shun her after she 'comes out'
Going meta on my own story much? I did have neat handwriting then, though. Now it goes everywhere and anywhere I'll let it.
