In a Nutshell: time travel – family – stardust

Even physicists struggle to understand quantum theory but Christopher Edge makes a very fine attempt at an explanation, though the most striking thing about his story is actually not the how of quantum physics, but its particular why: Albie - named after Einstein of course – has a very good reason to make like Schrödinger’s cat because in a parallel world the mum he’s just lost to cancer could still be alive. Using his mum’s scientific theories, laptop, Geiger counter and a banana (they’re radioactive), he manages to create a wormhole through the fifth dimension and reach parallel worlds. This provides multiple opportunities for Back-to-the-Future-style comic confusion, though eventually Albie finds the consolation and comfort he needs back where he started. A clever, funny and very touching novel. ~ Andrea Reece

Readers who enjoy this will also like Ross Welford’s Time Travelling with a Hamster, another funny, warm-hearted novel about family and time travel. 

A message from the Editor: “This is a funny, moving and exciting novel. Like Albie, the reader never knows where they'll end up, what they'll find, or whether they'll ever get back home again…"
