Publisher's Summary

What Harry Potter did for magic, Max Einstein does for kids' imaginations!

Number-one best-selling author James Patterson has written the first and only children's adventure novel officially approved by the Albert Einstein Archives. "If you're interested in science, mysteries or courageous heroines, this is a must-read!" (Chelsea Clinton)

Max Einstein is not your typical genius. She...

  • Hacks the computer system at NYU to attend classes
  • Builds inventions to help the homeless
  • And talks to Albert Einstein! (Okay, that's just in her imagination)

But everything changes when Max is recruited by a mysterious organization! Their mission: solve some of the world's toughest problems using science. She's helped by a diverse group of young geniuses from around the globe as they invent new ways to power the farthest reaches of the planet. But that's only if the sinister outfit known only as The Corporation doesn't get to her first....

Max Einstein is a heroine for the modern age and will be looked up to by kids for generations to come.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Critic Reviews

"Think of everything that can inspire young girls and put them into one book; this is it! The time is now for a girl to take the helm of the domains of genius, creativity and courage. Max Einstein is that girl and this is the book that can turn our young girls into dreamers and world changers! Max Einstein is everything you hope young girls can dream to be: smart, brave, creative, and able to inspire others to be the same. I love this book for all kids who want to dream big and imagine even bigger!" (Mayim Bialik, number-one New York Times best-selling author of Girling Up and Boying Up)

"This book is an inspirational page-turner that won't let you down. Any girl (or boy) can see themselves as Max Einstein, who uses her science smarts and bravery to travel the globe and help people. It is so important that children feel empowered to create solutions to our world's biggest problems. This book celebrates the importance of young people's new ideas and endless imagination. A great addition to any book shelf!" (Rachel Ignotofsky, New York Times best-selling author of Women in Science and The Wondrous Workings of Planet Earth)

"Mix together these ingredients: a feisty heroine, a rambunctious plot, a nasty villain, and the notion that being smart is cool, and that working together across all sorts of barriers is even cooler, and you have this rollicking roller coaster of a book." (Gary D. Schmidt, author of Newbery Honor-winning The Wednesday Wars and National Book Award finalist Okay for Now)

perfect combo of science, learning, adventure!

my 8 year old liked it even if the vocabulary was above her grade at times but that gave us many moments to discuss what's happening in the story. like the way science is laced into adventures by world-saving teens all the while making kids think, a bit holistically. one challenge though was myriad accents though I do see how that can be useful. all in all, it reminded my tin-tin days minus war + science :)
