Award-winning author Susin Nielsen has created two narrators who will steal your heart and make you laugh out loud.
Thirteen-year-old Stewart is academically brilliant but socially clueless.
Fourteen-year-old Ashley is the undisputed "it" girl in her class, but her grades stink.
Their worlds are about to collide when Stewart and his dad move in with Ashley and her mom. Stewart is trying to be 89.9 percent happy about it, 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 are complete opposites. And yet they have one thing in common: They - like everyone else - are made of molecules.

"This savvy, insightful take on the modern family makes for nearly nonstop laughs." (Kirkus Reviews)
"There's so much to love about this story...but what grabbed me the most is the humor." (Christopher Paul Curtis, winner of the Newbery Medal)
"Susin Nielsen is one of the best writers working today. In We Are All Made of Molecules, her astonishing ability to combine insight, tenderness, poignancy, and uproarious humor is in full flower. Susin Nielsen is a genius, and kids and adults alike will adore this book." (Susan Juby, author of The Truth Commission)
I really enjoyed how real Susin Nielsen's characters were and how she deals with some important issues many kids have to cope with. The story is engrossing, and I didn't ever want to stop listening. The two performers reading Stewart's and Ashley's roles were very effective. I highly recommend this title!
