The Zanna Function Read Online Free - When fourteen-year-old Zanna Mayfield gets an acceptance letter from St. Pommeroy’s School for Gifted Children, she jumps at the chance to put her considerable intellect to good use. But nothing can prepare her for the first day, when she discovers that she is a Scientist —one able to see and bend the basic functions of the universe like velocity, gravity, and chemical reactions to her own purposes.
As Zanna struggles to make friends and learn how to use her abilities at her new school, her troubles multiply when a mysterious stranger begins stalking her, dead set on keeping Zanna out of St. Pommeroy’s. If Zanna has any hope of finishing her first year, she’ll need to master every function she can get her mind around—including the one that defines Zanna herself.

You know how after you've read a really, really good book, you just close it and give a huge sigh that starts from somewhere near your toes?
This caused one of those sighs.
Full review up later.

As early as first chapter, it was obvious that 14-year old, Zanna Mayfield is gifted though it's a little later that we learn where exactly she excels. SCIENCE. The acceptance letter she received from the mysterious exclusive St. Pommeroy's School for Gifted Children is a proof to th...

I really enjoyed this one.
More than I was expecting to as well.
Which is good, because I wasn’t expecting to like it at all if I’m being honest.
I love magic and fantasy with a passion.
The same amount of passion with which I hate math and science.
So a book using math and science as the basis o...

Harry Potter meets Mistborn in this middle grade novel, where the existence of true magic is possible thanks to SCIENCE! I absolutely adored this book!
Since middle grade is a little shunned of a genre in my opinion, I requested this book because of all the great memories I had of reading middle g...

I will start this review off by saying this is not the kind of book I normally gravitate towards. It's got magic and a whole different world. In the book, this world is unknown to all us magic-less people (the Control Group) except for the President (uh oh!). What drew me to it was the main chara...

I am a huge fan of world-within-the-world (or -behind-the-world) books, in which self-described "average" or "outsider" characters who have always felt lost suddenly find out that the world is much bigger/different/stranger than everyone realized and that their outsider status in the *real* world...
