Special Topics in Calamity Physics

This is a fun book to read - lots of twists and a very unexpected ending. I read it 5 or 6 years ago, and wanted to again, but I couldn't remember the title or author's name. I have been searching for it for months!

All I could remember was that it was about a teenaged girl whose nickname was Junebug. She lived with her father - mom was not in her life. One of her parents had a large collection of butterflies and moths and it was set in the south. People are not who or what they seem to be - there's a slightly scary undercurrent. It is not a "chick flick" type of book at all.

I had forgotten about a site I bookmarked a while ago: https://www.makeuseof.com/tag/how-to-find-a-book-without-knowing-the-title-or-author/ The second suggestion was to use Google book search and there it was.

It has nothing to do with Physics so don't let the title scare you. I recommend it and intend to read it again as soon as I finish the ones I have now.

Me too. It's a good book if you're looking for something to curl up with in this cold weather.

all you need is to google it.

When I Googled it, all I got were children's books and field guides to butterflies, etc. I had to use Google Books, which is a whole separate thing apparently.

Isn't this wonderful.You can almost find anything online if you searched it.
Glad that you were able to located the title of the book.

Yes, you just have to look in the right places. The librarian couldn't even find it for me - I'll have to tell her next time I see her.
