Description

Readers who enjoyed the strange science, quirky humor, and out-of-this-world plot twists in Tesla's Attic will be captivated by this second book in the electrifying Accelerati Trilogy from New York Times-bestselling and award-winning author Neal Shusterman and author/screenwriter Eric Elfman.
Fourteen-year-old Nick has learned that the strange antiques in his attic bedroom were left there by the eccentric inventor Nikola Tesla. They are pieces of Tesla's Far Range Energy Emitter, capable of transmitting "free energy" to the globe. Some components of the contraption are still missing, but the objects themselves seem to be leading Nick and his friends to their current owners. 
However, members of the Accelerati, a menacing secret society of physicists, are on the hunt too, and their brazen leader, Dr. Alan Jorgenson, will stop at nothing to foil Nick and steal the objects. It takes a dangerous build-up of electromagnetic energy in the atmosphere to reverse everyone's fortunes—and lead Nick to his destiny.

        Celestial Object Felicity Bonk -- the asteroid that nearly destroyed the planet in Tesla's Attic (rev. 3/14) -- maintains its ominous orbit of Earth. Nick Slate believes that he can keep the mysterious orb at bay (or possibly get rid of it for good) by building Tesla's Far Range Energy Emitter (or FREE), which -- in addition to saving humanity -- may also be capable of transmitting energy across the world. Nick embarks on an unenviable reclamation project to find the many odd gizmos he mistakenly sold at his garage sale a few weeks before and fit them together to make the FREE. The quirky gadgetry from the first book returns in full force with some intriguing additions, such as an invisible-stringed harp that sends out cosmic vibrations when plucked. Secondary characters feel more fleshed out than in the previous installment; the authors give more airtime to key members of the villainous Accelerati, and Nick's friends show some sinister sides as well (could one or more of Nick's chums be double-crossing him?). Nick's relationship with Caitlin blossoms into more than just a friendship, but in a very G-rated manner. As in the previous book, the plotting gets a bit convoluted in places, but the humor and the strong narrative voice carry the day. Stay tuned for what is likely to be an apocalyptic finale. sam bloom
