We Are All Made of Molecules

(2 reviews with an average rating of 5 out of 5)

Publisher: Andersen Press

Stewart loves maths and doing Lego without instructions. He loves his family: himself, mum, dad. They're an equilateral triangle - although, ideally, a sister would square the triangle.

Then his Mum dies. Their triangle collapses.

Ashley loves clothes, reality TV. She dreams about conquering school's social ladder and dating gorgeous Jared. No-one can know her parents divorced because her dad's gay.

Nor can they know that a freakazoid like Stewart is now her brother after their parents get together. They become uneasy, mismatched siblings. Stewart later discovers Jared intends Ashley harm - what should he do?

Intellectually high-functioning, socially floundering Stewart; socially superior, painfully insecure Ashley. Their utterly distinctive and compelling voices alternate as they negotiate painful, difficult relationships in this intelligent, moving novel about two imploded families forging themselves a new shape.
