Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine and allows book bloggers to spotlight releases that we are greatly anticipating.
This week, my Waiting on Wednesday pick is:
About Ultraviolet Catastrophe:
Quantum Electrodynamics. String Theory. Schrödinger’s cat. For sixteen-year-old Lexie Kepler, they’re just confusing terms in her science textbooks, until she finds out that her parents have been drugging her to suppress her outrageous IQ. Now Branston Academy, a school run by the world’s most powerful scientists, has tracked her down and is dying for her to attend – as a research subject.
She takes refuge at Quantum Technologies, a secret scientific community where her father works as a top-notch scientist, and begins her new life as girl genius at Quantum High. But the assignments at her new school make the Manhattan Project look like preschool – and Lexie barely survived freshman algebra.
Her first big assignment – creating an Einstein-Rosen bridge – is also her first chance to prove she can hold her own with the rest of QT’s prodigies. But while working with the infuriatingly hot Asher Rosen, QT’s teen wonder, Lexie uncovers a mistake in their master equation. Instead of a wormhole, the machine they’re building would produce deadly ultraviolet rays that could destroy the world. Now Lexie and Asher have to use their combined brainpower to uncover the truth behind the device. Before everyone at Quantum Technologies is caught in the ultraviolet catastrophe.
Why I’m Waiting on it:
Because I’ve been waiting on it for longer than you’d think. About a year ago, I took a YA Writing course online through LitReactor and Jamie was one of the other students.
Ultraviolet Catastrophe was one of the projects that I remembered after the class was over. Jamie’s first line and pages were killer and I loved her premise and sample query. I mean, a girl genius so deep in hiding that even she doesn’t know it? Yes. Yes, please.
I can’t wait for this book to be out in the wild!
Ultraviolet Catastrophe by Jamie Grey comes out September 24, 2013.
