Product description

Top BBC presenter Simon Mayo’s supreme new sci-fi. Genius geeks and radioactive rocks. Being a nerd is definitely cool in this thrilling read about a teenage science whizz, ruthless crooks and rocks with freaky powers. Itchingham Lofte is a teenage science genius who has found a brand new element. Precious, radioactive, incredibly rare. Itch has already nearly died for it; not once but twice. But he’s still not safe. Terrorists and sinister crooks are still on the hunt for Element 126… Think Young Bond with cutting-edge science and deadly chemicals mixed in: seriously reactive.
