A piercing and ironic mathematical novel, for kids and for their parents as well: the almost 13-years old Giulio and Ivano will deal not only with maths and the puzzle of multi-dimensional geometries, but also with the problems of preadolescence, the fear of becoming adult, the friendship of a new gang and a mysterious “avenger”.
What is there behind the Dark Area of the beach? Who is the “avenger” of the summer camp? What is an hypercube? Maybe these questions seem to have nothing in common, but they are the main guidelines of this fascinating novel, which is perfect to get kids close to mathematics, but also to be charmed by the mystery of growing-up.
