This one's silly and fun but also connected to some really cool science. It's different from the usual Wendy Mass stuff.

Joss, the 7th son of the Supreme Overlord of the Universe (and a pie delivery boy) finds himself in a strange situation: to save his best friend, he has to rebuild planet Earth from the very beginning of the solar system. Can he get it done in time?

Grown-up portion of review:

After getting past the cover, I was pretty much disappointed with Wendy Mass's latest novel. The best part was not even part of the story: it was the quotes from famous physicists and astronomers at the beginning of each chapter.

I was excited to read this after loving The Candymakers, but this book was much less dynamic. Flat characters, contrived plot, loose ends hanging out all over the place...it just wasn't as tight as Mass's other work. Pulling in the latest science is a great thought, but it didn't pan out here. ( )

This was a difficult story to get into mainly because the main characters aren't my age. But, I did eventually like Joss and even Annika. The Realms and the discoveries were very interesting. I liked the world building literally... as well as the slight mystery and finding out what everyone was up to. The ending turned pretty sad but then very unexpected. I loved all the quotes! Made me think. ( )

Well, it's by Mass, so I liked it - her books have been reliably entertaining. But this wasn't my favorite - too superficial, too focused on the action, and the science was too forced. Imo. There were no meaty themes about relationships, or growing pains, or politics, or even the transience of life - though all those ideas were glanced at. ( )
