Throughout history, the greatest scientists — Einstein, Darwin, Gallileo, Newton — have made discoveries that were too dangerous to trust humanity with. So they hid them.
But now, an evil organization is closing in on the most dangerous discovery of all — an equation developed by Albert Einstein himself that could destroy the world. Desperate, the CIA has no choice but to recruit the most brilliant person they can find to help them: A twelve-year-old genius named Charlie Thorne.
The catch: Charlie isn’t like any genius you’ve ever encountered before. She’s a daredevil. A troublemaker. And possibly a criminal.
Now, Charlie finds herself dragged into a perilous mission that will take her from the ski slopes of Colorado to the tundra of Greenland to the secret tunnels underneath Jerusalem. Along the way, she’ll have to crack a series of clues left by Einstein himself. She’ll have no idea who to trust. And her life will be in constant jeopardy.
But she’ll have to survive. Because she’s the only one who can save the world.
“Gibbs deftly pens an Alex Rider–level adventure with this series starter… The plot moves at breakneck speed from start to literal cliffhanger finish. Charlie is a wildly entertaining protagonist… It doesn’t take a theoretical physicist to predict that this series will be popular.” — Booklist
“An adrenaline-charged thriller… Charlie is a terrific hero—outrageously smart, courageous, and still believable as a kid. After this explosive start, young readers will eagerly await her next adventure.” — Publisher’s Weekly
