Charlie Thorne and the Last Equation (Signed Copy)
“Fast-paced, smart, and action-packed...a real page-burner.” —Chris Grabenstein, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Mr. Lemoncello’s Library series
From New York Times bestselling author Stuart Gibbs comes the first novel in a thrilling new series about the world’s youngest and smartest genius who’s forced to use her unbelievable code-breaking skills to outsmart Einstein.
Charlie Thorne is a genius.
Charlie Thorne is a thief.
Charlie Thorne isn’t old enough to drive.
And now it’s up to her to save the world…
Decades ago, Albert Einstein devised an equation that could benefit all life on earth—or destroy it. Fearing what would happen if the equation fell into the wrong hands, he hid it.
But now, a diabolical group known as the Furies are closing in on its location. In desperation, a team of CIA agents drags Charlie into the hunt, needing her brilliance to find it first—even though this means placing her life in grave danger.
In a breakneck adventure that spans the globe, Charlie must crack a complex code created by Einstein himself, struggle to survive in a world where no one can be trusted, and fight to keep the last equation safe once and for all.
“This is our Grandmother Fish. She lived a long, long, time ago. She could wiggle and swim fast. Can you wiggle?” I cannot recommend this book more… A kid’s level story of our evolutionary history that’s all at once fun, interactive, and very scientifically accurate it’s such to be a hit with little evolutionary biologists. And it even has more detailed information about our evolutionary phylogeny at the end for more curious little ones or curious parents! - - Linnea
