MG Book Review: The Infinite Lives of Maisie Day by Christopher Edge

This is sure to be a classic in children’s science fiction.

Ten- year old Maisie is a science genius who dreams of building her own nuclear reactor. When she wakes up on her birthday to an empty house and blackness outside her front door that seems to be expanding, she panics. Did one of her experiments go wrong? Can she stay one step ahead of the blackness and piece together what happened?

Told in alternating chapters from two different time lines, we piece together what must have happened only to be surprised by a clever twist. The Infinite Lives of Maise Day will tug at your heart and make you think about science in a way you never thought possible. This is a must read!
