Gah! I saw this at ALAMW and almost grabbed it and didn't. (Kicks self.) I wish I noticed that it was by Susin Nielsen! I adored Word Nerd and The Reluctant Journal of Henry K. Larsen!
We are all made of molecules by Susin Nielsen. 256 p. Random House Children's Books, May 12, 2015. 9780553496864.
Publisher synopsis: Thirteen-year-old Stewart is academically brilliant but socially clueless.
Fourteen-year-old Ashley is the undisputed “It” girl in her class, but her grades stink.
Their worlds are about to collide when Stewart and his dad move in with Ashley and her mom. Stewart is trying to be 89.9 percent happy about it, but Ashley is 110 percent horrified. She already has to hide the real reason her dad moved out; “Spewart” could further threaten her position at the top of the social ladder.
They are complete opposites. And yet, they have one thing in common: they—like everyone else—are made of molecules.
What are you waiting on?
