A YOUNG WOMAN'S QUEST TO UNRAVEL THE UNIVERSE
The future. In response to environmental degradation, the Eco-community sect eschews science and technology, returning an austere agricultural life of nature-worship. But one young member, Fizz, struggles to reconcile these doctrines with her own burning curiosity. Risking life and social standing, Fizz embarks on a quest that brings her face-to-face with the often-eccentric giants of physics, from Aristotle and Galileo to Einstein and Hawking. One encounter at a time, Fizz pieces together the intricate workings of our universe, while struggling with the resulting intellectual, moral, and personal challenges.
Returning as a changed person from her epic quest, Fizz faces the decision that will change her world forever.
In the genre of the highly successful Sophie's World, Fizz weaves the bizarre and inspiring history of physics into the touching, dramatic, personal story of a young woman named Fizz who comes of age while voyaging across the centuries.

Not since Sophie’s World, to which this novel bears important similarities, has there been a book to do for the scientific world what the former did for philosophy—inform, intrigue, and entertain… Young girls who accompany Fizz on her journey will quickly discover how good it feels to satisfy their curiosity about how the universe works. Men and women of all ages who enjoy learning outside of school will also be enthralled with these adventures in physics…
Zvi Schreiber’s writing is clear and the plot zooms along… A lot of fun
