About the Book


Grace Lisa Vandenburg: she's just like the girl next door, the best friend you hope to find, except for one thing --- Grace counts. The letters in her name (19); the steps she takes every morning to the local café (920); the daily slice of orange cake and the number of poppy seeds on top dictate the number of bites she'll take to finish it. Numbers hold Grace's world together but that world threatens to come apart when she finds Seamus Joseph O'Reilly (also a 19) sitting at the table where she always sits, and of top of that the café is out of orange cake. When Grace accepts Seamus's invitation to join him and then orders pancakes, it's the beginning of something either dreadful…or wonderful, and it's up to Grace to figure it out.
