We Are All Made of Molecules — Susin Nielsen

19 Jan


Publisher:Wendy Lamb Books
Released: May 12th, 2015
Genre: Young Adult
Source: Paperback review copy from publisher



Thirteen-year-old Stewart is academically brilliant but socially clueless.

Fourteen-year-old Ashley is the undisputed “It” girl in her class, but her grades stink.

Their worlds are about to collide when Stewart and his dad move in with Ashley and her mom. Stewart is trying to be 89.9 percent happy about it, but Ashley is 110 percent horrified. She already has to hide the real reason her dad moved out; “Spewart” could further threaten her position at the top of the social ladder.

They are complete opposites. And yet, they have one thing in common: they—like everyone else—are made of molecules.

From Goodreads

It’s no secret that I am deeply in love with everything that Susin Nielsen has written. I mean completely smitten. Her books make me feel ALL THE FEELS: happy, excited, giddy, sad, heart-broken and just amazed at the story and the way she strings together words and thoughts and feeling so perfectly.

We Are All Made of Molecules is no different. This book was amazing and wonderful and just AHHHHHH. Susin once again writes imperfect characters perfectly. I love how real each and everyone of them are. Awkward and unsure and doing their best to manoeuvre through life. And the relationships are bumpy and weird and cringe-worthy and so much like real life it sometimes took my breath away.

I’m not sure what else I can say about this book. I know this is a short review but I feel that my gushing will just get annoying after a bit.

Basically, just read this book. And all of Susin’s other books.  Then, after you are finished, put them on your bookshelf and every once in a while, take them out and hug them. And reread them. And then hug them some more.

That’s what I do, anyway.
