Everything changes the day ninth-grader Will Tuppence learns one startling fact: protons-those tiny atomic particles, the building-blocks to the building-blocks of life-can die. The one thing that was so certain in this world to Will has an expiration date.

And Will’s carefully planned-out life?

Not so certain, either.

Newbery Medalist Jerry Spinelli tips Will’s world on its side to show that the beauty and wonder of life is in not knowing what comes next.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Nick Wong | 2/12/2014

    " I like this book because it talks about how when one thing leads to another because a friend likes a friend but another friend likes a friend to but in a bigger friend way. The story is about this guy named Will Tuppence and he is a guy who is in love with protons and when he heard that protons could die, he freaked out like a man jumping in a river. Then he told his friends named Mi-Su and BT if they know about and Mi-Su already knew that protons could die. In the middle Will Tuppence is kind of in a love trance because he likes Mi-Su and BT likes her too. I recommend this to everyone. "
