George has problems. He has twin baby sisters at home who take up nearly all of his parents' attention. His beloved pig Freddy has been exiled to a farm, where he's miserable. And worst of all, his best friend Annie has made a new friend, who she seems to like more than George.

So he jumps at the chance to help Eric with his plans to run a big experiment in Switzerland, which seeks to explore the earliest moment of the universe. But there is a conspiracy afoot. A group of evildoers don't think the experiment should go ahead, and are planning to sabotage it. A mysterious message from George's old nemesis, Reeper, brings shocking new information, but whose side is Reeper really on? And can George repair his friendship with Annie and figure out the clues before Eric's experiment is destroyed forever? Download and start listening now!

    " This is an excellent book. It has everything you would expect in a GREAT young adult book and the characters are NOT perfect. I think the way Hawking adds science into the book is excellent and it does teach kids a lot. "
