Lucas has always felt different, out of place. With an IQ just a few points below genius level, he's one of the smartest kids in the Ohio area. With rock-solid beliefs and a sarcastic attitude, he believes his future is set. Until he meets Rose. 5 feet and 4 inches of spunk, style, and sass, this cheerleader is about to rock his world in more ways than one. Lucas and Rose form an unlikely companionship over hours of studying. Lucas comes to see Rose's potential, and lack of belief in herself, which only draws him closer to her enigmatic self. Through bonding with her big family and swimming at midnight, Rose fears her feelings for Lucas will interfere with the ones she has for her actual boyfriend, Parker. Parker, who doesn't pay enough attention to Rose - at least in Lucas' point of view - doesn't deserve her. What will happen when Lucas discovers Parker's dirty little secret? Will all of Lucas' ideals and beliefs change? Told in alternating perspectives under a sweltering, Ohio sun, Enigma answers all these questions, and more.
