The true story of mathematician Sophie Germain, who solved the unsolvable to achieve her dream.
When her parents took away her candles to keep their young daughter from studying math…
nothing stopped Sophie.

When a professor discovered that the homework send to him under a male pen name came from a woman… nothing stopped Sophie.

And when she tackled a math problem that male scholars said would be impossible to solve…still, nothing stopped Sophie.

Acclaimed author Cheryl Bardoe’s inspiring, lyrical text is brought to life by award-winning artist Barbara McClintock’s intricate pen-and-ink, watercolor, and collage illustrations in this true story of unshakable determination.
