The universe works in mysterious ways .

Alex Woods was struck by a meteorite when he was ten years old. leaving scars that marked him for an extraordinary life. The son of a fortune teller. bookish, and an easy target for bullies, he hasn't had the most conventional childhood.

When he meets curmudgeonly widower Mr. Peterson, he finds an unlikely friend. Someone who tells him that you only get one shot at life. That you have to make it count.

So when, aged seventeen, Alex is stopped at Dover customs with 1 13 grams of marijuana. an urn full of ashes on the passenger seat, and an entire nation in uproar, he's fairly sure he's done the right thing ..

Heart-breaking and hilarious, The Universe Versus Alex Woods is destined to be one of the most celebrated debuts of the year.
