According to her family, Karla Hernandez spends far too many hours working in a diabetes lab. A dedicated scientist, she has contributed to a drug that could improve diabetic patients’ quality of life. Her quality of life, however, could use some help.
She thought she would sleep better when she finished grad school or her post-doc, but launching a cutting-edge clinical trial isn’t helping. Thus, she agrees to be the research subject for her twelve-year-old niece. Finding a girlfriend was not the conclusion she had anticipated, but she is not one to deviate from protocol, especially not when the judge at the science fair has some ideas about helping her cure her insomnia.
All research requires troubleshooting, but Karla is not prepared for the complications that threaten to shut down more than her love life. Does she need to find a new project or dig into her professional work? Or will putting her faith in her niece’s research project be the key to her ever elusive sleep?
