Thirteen-year-old Stewart is academically brilliant, but socially clueless. Fourteen-year-old Ashley is the undisputed “It” girl in her class, but her grades stink.
Their worlds collide when Stewart and his Dad move in with Ashley and her mum. They are complete opposites. And yet, they have one thing in common: they – like everyone else – are made of molecules.
