Lucy was struck by lightning and the zap gave her genius-level math skills, so she has been homeschooled. Now, at 12 years old, she's ready for college. She just has to pass 1 more test: middle school! Lucy's not sure what a girl who does calculus homework for fun can possibly learn in 7th grade. She has everything she needs at home, where nobody can make fun of her rigid routines or her superpowered brain. The equation of Lucy's life has already been solved. Unless there's been a miscalculation?

No one likes baths. What a waste of time! There’s so much more important stuff to do! Plus, baths are super dangerous for a number of reasons. You want me to list a few? Most household accidents happen in the bathroom. Scientific fact! A kid in Texas turned into a prune after taking a bath. Scientific fact! If you need more evidence, allow me to point you to an excellent book called 101 REASONS WHY I'M NOT TAKING A BATH. It’s full of insightful and logical reasons why you should definitely not be subjected to this useless ritual.
