What's a rhombus?

My Life As Rhombus
by Varian Johnson
Flux, 2008

Staying on track at school means a boy-free equation for Rhonda Lee, who spends most evenings doing homework and eating Chinese takeout with her dad. While Rhonda needs a scholarship for college, some kids at her private high school, like beautiful Sarah Gamble, seem to coast along on popularity and their parents' money. When forced to tutor Sarah in trigonometry, Rhonda recognizes all too well the symptoms - queasiness, puking, and exhaustion - that Sarah is trying to mask. On a sudden impulse, Rhonda shares her past with Sarah. Exchanging their secrets adds up to more truths than either girl would have dreamed.

Ooh, I know, I know! It's a 4-sided figure with 2 parallel sides!

Ali said...

I meant, 2 pairs of parallel sides.

Summer said...

With a rhombus, all four sides are the same length.It therefore has all the properties of a parallelogram. (taken from some sit on google)

It's also known as a diamond. ;)
