9780064471978: Smiles to Go

Ninth grader Will Tuppence is in control.

He plans everything obsessively, from the perfect stargazing night with his crush, Mi-Su, to the regular Saturday-night games of Monopoly with his friends. He's even planned his entire adulthood: career as an astronomer; mint condition, black 1985 Jaguar XJS/12; two kids. . . .

But everything changes the day Will learns one startling fact: protons—those tiny atomic particles, the building blocks to the building blocks of life—can die. The one thing that was so certain in this world to Will has an expiration date.

And Will's carefully planned-out life?

Not so certain, either.

About the Author:

Jerry Spinelli received the Newbery Medal for Maniac Magee and a Newbery Honor for Wringer. His other books include Smiles to Go, Loser, Space Station Seventh Grade, Who Put That Hair in My Toothbrush?, Dump Days, and Stargirl. His novels are recognized for their humor and poignancy, and his characters and situations are often drawn from his real-life experience as a father of six children. Jerry lives with his wife, Eileen, also a writer, in Wayne, Pennsylvania.

From AudioFile:

Jerry Spinelli and Conor Donovan combine to create an appealing and authentic character in Will Tuppence. Will is a regular but offbeat kid. He's good at science and chess, has an annoying younger sister, and key to his social life are regular weekend Monopoly nights with best friends Mi-Su and BT. Will's sense of comfort and permanency are shaken when he learns that scientists have discovered the first evidence of proton decay. Donovan is absolutely convincing as a teenager with a voice containing both wonder and a self-questioning edge. Perfect pacing reflects various plot pointsfear over a family tragedy, confusion about whether Mi-Su could be more than a friend, and the calm that comes with learning to accept that not everything in life can be controlled. A.B. AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine
