Publisher:Random House Children's Books.

In a book set in Atlantic Canada, Erin's math anxiety is entwined with her family's Financial woes. When Erin's mother loses her job as a cook in a gourmet deli because she can't take on certain additional responsibilities (. pricing or indeed anything that requires math), Erin is utterly sympathetic: if she doesn't pull up her own math scores, she will have to repeat sixth grade. In desperation, Erin secretly takes a job with her mother's old employer in return for help with her math.

All day we’ve witnessed each other’s crimes

All day we’ve witnessed each other’s crimes. s and fields to an overnight stop at the brothers’ farm, and next day, in yellow morning light, on the swing of a compass needle, hurry through that glorious country of little valleys and streams and swarming bees, and take the rising footpath to the sad cottage by the railway. Gather up from the mud the pieces of burned, striped cloth, the shreds of his pajamas, then bring him down, the poor pale boy, and make a decent burial.

The characters are very relate-able for a student in this grade level. Often times students are struggling to gain insight and knowledge into their learning concepts, especially math. This ties into the idea that the plot is organized and suspenseful. As a student in fourth or fifth grade, learning new math concepts could be difficult. An example of how difficult math is for the main character, Erin, is when the author explains how numbers dance around in her head and then shrink.

ISBN 0394865782 - Very good and pretty realistic, too! Erin McEwan's father is back in school, her mother has been fired and as if that's not enough troubles, Erin herself is about to be forced to repeat a grade because she's as bad at math as her mother. Erin sets out to get her mother's job at Sbrocchi's Fine Foods back, but ends up getting a job there herself. She ends up lying to her parents, sneaking around behind their backs, arguing with her best friend and generally making a mess of things, but her plan is to get the new employee out of the way so that her mother's job is available again. It shouldn't be too hard - Mrs. Eberhardt, her replacement, is an good accountant and a terrible cook. Mrs. Sbrocchi is a good manager but a terrible accountant, so it's not a surprise that the business is having a hard time.

Once the truth comes out about where Erin's been every day after school, will her father quit school to go back to work he doesn't really like? And will her mother ever speak to her again? Worst of all, will she have to repeat a grade? Really a very nice story, especially for kids who just aren't good at math!

I think this book is ok. There are some parts where it should be more interesting. Very boring at times.

Erin McEwan, Your Days Are Numbered is one of my favorite books. It's about a girl who is poor in math, but finds a major bookkeeping error in stocks. I can't wait to read Erin McEwan, Your Days Are Numbered again!
