*** Revised version ***
Dori Woodsen is a shy, kind-hearted, polite sixteen-year-old who has a secret...she's a genius, wanting only to live a normal life. But her life is far from normal.
Fearing separation from her best friend Becca, Dori vows since childhood to keep her intelligence hidden from the world--and somehow she succeeds. But things become complicated as she begins her junior year of high school. When certain events--including a blossoming romance with the captain of her school's basketball team--cause Dori to finally reveal her genius, things quickly take a turn for the worse between her and Becca. A much darker turn than either of them could have imagined.
Realizing there's no way to reverse the situation, panic begins to set in, and Dori is eventually forced to decide between doing what's right, and doing what's best for the one friendship she's ever truly cherished.
Follow Dori on her journey of fear, courage, friendship, and first love as things come to a boil in an emotional twist ending in 'Curse of Genius.'
