Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where bloggers feature upcoming book releases that they're looking forward to.

This week I'm eagerly anticipating...

Ultraviolet Catastrophe
by Jamie Grey

Publisher: Self-Pub
Release Date: September 24, 2013
Synopsis (from Goodreads):

Quantum Electrodynamics. String Theory. Schrödinger's cat. For sixteen-year-old Lexie Kepler, they’re just confusing terms in her science textbooks, until she finds out that her parents have been drugging her to suppress her outrageous IQ. Now Branston Academy, a school run by the world’s most powerful scientists, has tracked her down and is dying for her to attend - as a research subject.

She takes refuge at Quantum Technologies, a secret scientific community where her father works as a top-notch scientist, and begins her new life as girl genius at Quantum High. But the assignments at her new school make the Manhattan Project look like preschool - and Lexie barely survived freshman algebra.

Her first big assignment – creating an Einstein-Rosen bridge – is also her first chance to prove she can hold her own with the rest of QT's prodigies. But while working with the infuriatingly hot Asher Rosen, QT’s teen wonder, Lexie uncovers a mistake in their master equation. Instead of a wormhole, the machine they’re building would produce deadly ultraviolet rays that could destroy the world. Now Lexie and Asher have to use their combined brainpower to uncover the truth behind the device. Before everyone at Quantum Technologies is caught in the ultraviolet catastrophe.

I love the idea of a female heroine using her INTELLIGENCE to fight the big bad! I'm not smart at all when it comes to science, but I seem to always be intrigued when it comes to reading about scientific theories, etc.


  1. Sounds interesting, I like the idea of the academy. Mysterious and all that. Sounds like a fun book!

  2. This sounds great I love the concept of patents making the Main character less smart is very interesting.

  3. Love how this seems to be based on real science-glad that SF seems to be making a big comeback in YA. And I appreciate that the cover is thematically appropriate-anything less than purple wouldn't really fit.


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment; I appreciate each one!
