Smash! by Sara Latta
My understanding of physics and subatomic particles has always been basic. Neutrons, protons, electrons. Anything past that was well beyond me. So I was pleased to find this book. Think of it like the Magic School Bus for a slightly more advanced crowd. Now, it is a very basic introductions. I wouldn't say that I have a clear understanding of physics having read this book. More like a better idea of everything involved and what scientists are trying to achieve with the Large Hadron Collider. A solid choice for a middle grader with an interest in science.
