The Quantum League: Spell Robbers (for ages 8-12) by Matthew J. Kirby

When Ben joins a science club at the university where his mom works, he finds out there is more to quantum physics than he thought.
The Quantum League: Spell Robbers book cover by Matthew J. Kirby

Ben is special. After joining the club he finds out that, through the laws of quantum physics, he can “actuate.” Just by using his imagination, he can affect the world around him. He learns to create fire, ice, and lightning with the help of Dr. Hughes, a mentor to the kids in the “club.” She makes a major discovery in the field: a mobile augmenter that would allow actuators to amplify their abilities wherever they are.

A rival gang hears of this valuable device and kidnaps the equipment and the doctor. Now, Ben must use his imagination not only to get his old life back, but to survive.

This first installment of the Quantum League series is action-packed and fast-paced. Read Chapter 1 and tell us what you think.

    the book was amazing because the boy has lighting fire and ice powers I also like it because it is just like Michael Vey (Teens) that is why I want the book.

  5. Interresting

    The science behind their abilities is fun to examine. But what is most interesting is Ben’s entry to the league.

    I’m not gonna read just now. (I’m a huge reader and set up this GIGANTIC reading cue)
    But…. Is it just me or are the characters of “Harry Potter”. (A black-haired kid finds out about a fatastical world of magic and becomes best friends with a red-haired guy with freckles.)
