SUCKS. HAS NO PLOT AND LITTLE DESCRIPTIONS.

Protons can decay. For science geek Will Tupence this means his world has radically shifted. Nothing is permanent. Everything can eventually disappear.

What shocks Will is that no-one else in his life seems to care. His little sister continues to torture him. His friends continue with their Monopoly ritual and his teachers barely mention the event.

And then he accepts it and moves on, and the book barely mentions the proton decay again. Instead it focuses on Will realizing that he has feelings for his best friend Mi-Su and his nasty ongoing war with his younger sister Tabby.

As others have mentioned, the book almost seems like two separate works fused together, as if Spinelli was a little too lazy to rewrite the first half when he thought of something better.

It is still an eminently readable book, and Spinelli is a big name, so this will sell well. But this is not Stargirl nor is it Maniac McGee.
