The Many Worlds of Albie Bright by Christopher Edge
Albie misses his parents. His dad is too busy travelling all over the world now that he's a famous scientist on TV - and his mum won't ever be coming back because she died of cancer.
Science runs in the family, so it's science he turns to for comfort. Quantum theory opens up endless possibilities to Albie - in some of these parallel universes, his mum might still be alive.
With a cardboard box and a black banana, Albie's going to travel through time and space to see her again. Considering the topics covered, this is a light read that has fun exploring an aspect of quantum theory. A bit funny, a bit sad and a bit mad.
