The Quantum Weirdness of the Almost-Kiss
This phenomenal story for the geek is a very special first romance. In The Quantum Weirdness of the Almost Kiss, you meet one technology-loving, ordinary boy and his romantically naive, physics genius of a ‘girl-space-friend’. The story chronicles the first kiss and crush of a young woman in the sciences, conquering emotional troubles and finding her heart along the way. I really think it is well written, with a healthy sprinkling of physics, especially quantum mechanics, references. Both romance and science are well-mixed, due to the fact that the majority of the physics comes from the setting, a selective, private school. The book is written in a neat fashion, alternating between the girl and the boy. This element means that girls and boys both would enjoy it. However, the fact that Evie, the girl, is center-stage might mean that girls may prefer the book. Most STEM prodigies aged eleven or older would enjoy the book. Every middle-school physics geek should read this to dip into the sea of romance. Although the book will be most appealing to science oriented kids, other middle schoolers will enjoy it as well because it is a very well written young romance. Every middle school and library needs a copy.
