Waiting On Wednesday: The Theory of Everything

The Theory of Everything
Author: Kari Luna
Publisher: Philomel
Expected Publication: July 11, 2013
One part Libba Bray's GOING BOVINE, two parts String Theory, and three parts love story equals a whimsical novel that will change the way you think about the world.
Sophie Sophia is obsessed with music from the late eighties. She also has an eccentric physicist father who sometimes vanishes for days and sees things other people don’t see. But when he disappears for good and Sophie’s mom moves them from Brooklyn, New York, to Havencrest, Illinois, for a fresh start, things take a turn for the weird. Sophie starts seeing things, like marching band pandas, just like her dad.

Guided by Walt, her shaman panda, and her new (human) friend named Finny, Sophie is determined to find her father and figure out her visions, once and for all. So she travels back to where it began—New York City and NYU’s physics department. As she discovers more about her dad’s research on M-theory and her father himself, Sophie opens her eyes to the world’s infinite possibilities—and her heart to love.

My Thoughts: Girls father disappears and while she is trying to find him she starts seeing panda's? The Theory of Everything you have peaked my interest! Can't wait to see how the author handles the science portions of the novel and the mental illness component. Should be interesting!


  1. Really curious about Sophie and her father. The experiments and seeing things.
    My WOW

  2. I really liked Going Bovine and I like this blurb. This sounds so interesting and different...especially the marching band pandas.
