Abby hates doing homework. In fact, she’ll do just about anything to get out of it. So when she discovers an amazing scientific recipe for creating a parallel universe where she’ll never have to do homework again, she’s ready to jump right in. There’s just one small wrinkle—she might not be able to find a way back.

Inspired by mind-bending modern physics, David Zeltser and Ayesha L. Rubio spin the tale of a hilarious girl in a truly out-of-this-world adventure.

Illustrator: Ayesha L. Rubio

Ayesha L. Rubio was born in Madrid, Spain, in February. She loved to draw, but unfortunately for her family, any surface was an empty canvas for her. Her grandfather taught her to draw on paper, instead of furniture or walls. Nowadays, she lives in London and works as an author and illustrator and occasional animator.
