However, the more I read, the more I discovered that it would appeal to the same audience as morning television: 70% female viewers.

THE ABSOLUTE VALUE OF MIKE by Kathryn Erskine
Mike’s father is a genius of mathematics; however, Mike isn’t. No matter how much he tries, Mike just doesn’t “get” math. This leaves him feeling inadequate and a disappointment to his father.
