We Are All Made Of MoleculesPaperback - 2016
Stewart, 13: Socially clueless genius.
Ashley, 14: Popular with everyone but her teachers
Ashley's and Stewart's worlds collide when Stewart and his dad move in with Ashley and her mom. The Brady Bunch it isn't. Stewart is trying to be 89.9 percent happy about it--he's always wanted a sister. But Ashley is 110 percent horrified. She already has to hide the real reason her dad moved out; "Spewart" could further threaten her position at the top of the social ladder.
They're complete opposites, but they have one thing in common: they--like everyone else--are made of molecules.
In this hilarious and deeply moving story, award-winning author Susin Nielsen has created two narrators who will steal your heart and make you laugh out loud.

SummaryAdd a Summary
Stewart has always wanted a sister. So when his father's co-worker/girlfriend invites them to move into their home, he feels ecstatic. However, his father's girlfriends daughter is not so excited about having new members in their home.
This story is realistic and interesting. Susin Nielsen's wonderful novel is filled with ups and downs, pains, doubts, but overall, I enjoyed it. I'd recommend this novel for those who love to hear both sides of the story. For those who seek drama, love, and excitement. This book is for you. I hope you enjoy as much as I did. Or even better.
