Fizz: Novel Brings Einstein to Life on 100th Anniversary of Landmark Revelation

Fizz -- a New Edu-Novel Revives the Genre of Sophie's World (30 Million Copies Sold) Telling the Story of a Young Woman's Quest to Unravel the Mysteries of Our Universe; Fizz Is Published by Zedess a Century After Einstein's Seminal Prediction That Gravity Bends Light; ForeWord Magazine's Clarion Review Has Awarded Fizz 5 Stars

JERUSALEM--(Marketwire - Jul 19, 2011) - In response to environmental degradation, the Eco-community sect returns to an austere agricultural life of nature-worship. But one young member, Fizz, has a burning curiosity that defies suppression. Risking life and social standing, Fizz embarks on a quest that brings her face-to-face with the eccentric giants of physics, from Aristotle and Galileo, to Einstein and Hawking. One encounter at a time, Fizz pieces together the intricate workings of our universe, and struggles with the resulting intellectual, moral, and personal challenges.

Returning as a changed person from her epic quest, Fizz faces the decision that will change her world forever.

Fizz: Nothing is as it seems, is published today, marking the hundredth anniversary of Albert Einstein's dramatic conjecture in June 1911 that gravity bends light, which triggered a train of insights leading to his general theory of relativity, curved space and time, and black holes. In her epic journey across the centuries, Fizz participates in this and many other "eureka" moments.

In the 1990s, edu-novel Sophie's World communicated the complexities of philosophy, through a story, to thirty million readers. Today, Fizz rejuvenates the genre, skillfully weaving the often-bizarre history of physics into a touching story about a young woman. Adults and young adults who are intrigued by the universe we all call home, and those looking for an introduction to science, are all invited to join Fizz on her expedition.

Holly Doering of ForeWord magazine awarded Fizz a Five Star Clarion Review: "Not since Sophie's World has there been a book to do for the scientific world what the former did for philosophy -- inform, intrigue, and entertain... Young girls who accompany Fizz on her journey will quickly discover how good it feels to satisfy their curiosity. Men and women of all ages who enjoy learning will also be enthralled with these adventures in physics... The personalities are well-drawn... Challenges are presented boldly... Zvi Schreiber's writing is clear and the plot zooms along... A lot of fun."
