About the book
Your best friend hates you. The guy you liked hates you. Your entire group of friends hate you. All because you did the right thing.

Welcome to life for Mena Reece, whose year is starting off in the worst way possible. She's been kicked out of her church group and no one will talk to her - not even her parents. No one except for Casey, her supersmart lab partner in science class, who's pretty funny for the most brilliant guy on earth.

And when Ms. Shepherd begins the unit on evolution, school becomes more dramatic than Mena could ever imagine as she is caught up in a controversy involving science, religion, freedom - and a heart-racing, blush-inducing, can't stop-thinking-about-him-crush.

     Now Mena's own life if about to evolve in some amazing and unexpected ways...

“Robin Brande’s delightful book captures much more than a few remarkable weeks in the lives of a quirky and memorable group of high school students. It reminds us that what we teach in school has a profound effect on the lives of the very real people we call students. The lesson of Evolution, Me & Other Freaks of Nature is that science matters, and it matters most of all to the young people who struggle to understand the world around them and their place in it.”
Professor Kenneth Miller, Leading Biologist and Professor at Brown University
