Knocked out of her steady orbit by two recent tragedies, a Montana teen struggles to make sense of her disrupted world in terms of physics. Woolston masterfully captures an outsider teen's sophomoric musings, which keep returning to Ludwig Boltzmann's titular theory that an infinite universe randomly spawns self-aware but bodiless observers.

"The Freak Observer" is a story based on a sixteen-year-old Loa, who is suffering from a case of post-traumatic stress disorder. Throughout the story, she explains the reader her problems by using physics problems. She's a very strong girl because she lost her friend Esther and saw how she actually died. Not only that, but her sister Asta died, and Loa had to keep going after everything that has happened to her. She's really smart and is always referring to people's brain and the way they live with it. I highly recommend this book to teenager if they like stories about death and how people are affected by it.
