How far would you go to change your world?

When Albie’s mum dies, it’s natural he should ask where she’s gone. His parents are both scientists and they usually have all the answers. Dad mutters something about quantum physics and parallel universes, so Albie gets a box, a laptop and a rotting banana, and sends himself through time and space in search of his mum. What he finds may or may not be what he’s looking for, but he does learn the answers to some big questions.

It was my dad who gave me the idea of using quantum physics to find my mum.

She died two weeks ago.

Opening two lines of THE MANY WORLDS OF ALBIE BRIGHT by Christopher Edge.

You know when you read a few chapters of a brand new book and you get that tingly feeling in the pit of your stomach because you know it is going to be amazing? I got that feeling after reading the first two lines of Albie Bright.

Schrödinger’s Cat, Quantum Entanglement, Quantum Banana Theory – it’s got all the important science you’ll ever need or never thought you’d need. And the cool thing is, I actually understood it all! I almost feel the need to call up my old science teacher and tell him that I’ve finally got it, and maybe there is still hope for me.

Plus, it’s got parallel-universe-hopping, without having to worry about that space-time-continuum-wibbly-wobbly-timey-wimey-stuff. So Albie meets Albie, and then meets Albie, and then meets Alba. This book is seriously cool.

If you haven’t read this book already, then what are you doing?! Read it. Read it now!
