Summary

How far would you go to change your world?

When Albie's mum dies, it's natural he should wonder where she's gone. His parents are both scientists, and they usually have all the answers. Dad mutters something about Albie's mum being alive and with them in a parallel universe. So Albie finds a box, his mum's computer and a rotting banana and sends himself through time and space to find her....

Critic reviews

"A book with a big brain, big laughs and a big, big heart." (Frank Cottrell-Boyce)
"In the world of children's books, it's the equivalent of proving the earth is round: Christopher Edge has written a clever story infused with science that wears its intelligence humorously, introduces complex ideas with the lightest of touches, and deals with the death of a parent, all while pitching to mid-range boys, but not exclusively so, without resorting to fart jokes and groovy 'naive' drawings.... Edge proves the theory that novels about science can be enormous fun. Give the man his own element on the periodic table of children's authors." ( The Times)
"In theory, this adventure based in quantum physics could have gone on for another 100 chapters. In theory, it could have kept going forever.... Every world feels distinct and surprising.... Albie's reunion with his mother, when it comes, is utterly heartbreaking, and readers may be grateful they had so many chapters to prepare for it. The book is actually quite short, but it turns out to be exactly the perfect length." ( Kirkus Reviews)
