Ultraviolet Catastrophe Blog Tour: A Look In Lexie's Backpack

Title: Ultraviolet Catastrophe
Author: Jamie Grey
Release Date: September 24, 2013

SummaryQuantum Electrodynamics. String Theory. Schr√∂dinger's cat. For sixteen-year-old Lexie Kepler, they’re just confusing terms in her science textbooks, until she finds out that her parents have been drugging her to suppress her outrageous IQ. Now Branston Academy, a school run by the world’s most powerful scientists, has tracked her down and is dying for her to attend - as a research subject.

She takes refuge at Quantum Technologies, a secret scientific community where her father works as a top-notch scientist, and begins her new life as “girl genius” at Quantum High. But the assignments at her new school make the Manhattan Project look like preschool - and Lexie barely survived freshman algebra.

Her first big assignment – creating an Einstein-Rosen bridge – is also her first chance to prove she can hold her own with the rest of QT's prodigies. But while working with the infuriatingly hot Asher Rosen, QT’s teen wonder, Lexie uncovers a mistake in their master equation. Instead of a wormhole, the machine they’re building would produce deadly ultraviolet rays that could destroy the world.

When the lead scientist on their project turns up as a popsicle in the cryo chamber, Lexie learns that the “mistake” in the equation is actually a carefully crafted plan to sabotage Quantum Technologies. And all signs point to Branston Academy being the culprit. Now Lexie and Asher have to use their combined brainpower to stop Branston from stealing the plans and selling the doomsday device to the highest bidder, before everyone at QT is caught in the ultraviolet catastrophe.

A Look in Lexie’s Backpack

Looking at her, Lexie Kepler seems like a typical 16 year old girl. But Lexie is anything but normal. Most of the things she carries you’d find in any teenager’s bag, but she’s got her own geeky spin.

These are the things she never leaves for school without:

First off, she uses a messenger bag that was her Dad’s a long time ago. It’s retro-cool.

She also always stuffs a hoodie in there, because Quantum High is always cold. Something about scientific experiments and needing a climate-controlled environment. Whatever the reason, shivering through class isn’t fun.

She also always has hair ties, because there’s nothing worse than having Hermione hair falling into your eyes during the middle of an experiment. One wrong move could blow the place up!

Lexie also always has her cellphone (with a T.A.R.D.I.S. cover – a must for Doctor Who fans), and her tablet for checking email and doing homework.

Earbuds are also always a must to block out the noise in the library when she’s doing research. And of course a pair of fingerless gloves because it gets chilly in there.

Lexie takes most of her notes on her tablet, but sometimes you just need a piece of paper, so she always has her Albert Einstein notebook with her.

And last but not least, a tube of pink lip-gloss. Gotta keep those lips moisturized, just in case a hot genius boy wants to sneak a kiss.

Hey, a girl can dream, right?
