Review

Although two authors are credited on its cover, this book definitely benefits from the presence of a third contributor, albeit posthumously.

As the opening title in the first children’s series ever to be officially approved by the Albert Einstein Archives, it is infused with affection and admiration for the wild-haired physicist whose theories have played such a central role in the development of our understanding of the universe – and whose humanity was as important a legacy as his scientific advances.

The story’s eponymous heroine is a feisty, fiercely intelligent 12-year-old orphan with a profound sense of compassion that defines her (and drives her story) just as much as her genius; the series combines fast-paced adventure with an invitation for readers to consider some of the most critical problems facing our planet today, and to believe that, through creative thinking, STEM skills, and a willingness to work together, they might be part of the generation to solve them.
