Overview

A brilliant mind is a terrible thing to waste.

When sixteen-year-old Lexie discovers her parents have been using drugs to suppress her outrageous IQ, she understands why the advanced theories in her physics books have suddenly started making sense. But they're not done dropping bombshells. Branston Academy, a school run by the world's most powerful scientists, is searching for her so she can join them - as a research subject.

Her only safe haven is Quantum Technologies, a secret scientific community where her father works as a lead scientist. Now Lexie must prove herself at QT's school-for-geniuses, where competition is cutthroat and the other student prodigies make Albert Einstein look like an amateur. Including the infuriatingly hot Asher, QT's resident boy wonder.

But after a series of suspicious accidents in the restricted labs, Lexie discovers that Branston plans to unleash an ultraviolet catastrophe that will destroy everyone she loves. With the enemy closing in, Lexie must find the strength to face her past, or risk losing her future forever.

Editorial Reviews

Goodreads - Susan Kaye Quinn
Smart and funny with a side of geeky awesomeness, Ultraviolet Catastrophe charmed me from the first page. With its contemporary, campy feel and a dash of romance, Jamie Grey’s debut novel was a thoroughly enjoyable read. I devoured it.

~ Susan Kaye Quinn, author of the Mindjack Trilogy
Goodreads - Leigh Ann Kopans
Written in an incredibly real and engaging teen voice, Ultraviolet Catastrophe is a lighthearted yet stunningly crafted debut full of adventure, mystery, self-discovery, and romance. From the moment I started reading, Lexie, Asher, and the Quantum Tech world captured my imagination—by the end, they had captured my heart. Ultraviolet Catastrophe is my favorite Young Adult book of 2013, and I know YA readers of all kinds will love it too.

~ Leigh Ann Kopans, author of One and Two

Meet the Author

Jamie Grey spent most of her childhood writing stories about princesses who saved the day and pretending to be a daring explorer. It wasn't until much later that she realized she should combine the two. Now, as a tech-obsessed gamer geek, her novels mix amazing scientific developments, future worlds, and the remarkable characters that live in them.

Jamie lives in Michigan with her significant other and their pets, who luckily tolerate her overspending on tea, books, and video games. You can learn more about her at www.jamiegreybooks.com, or follow her on twitter via @jamie_grey.
