The Atomic Kid - Author George Parker to Speak on ArtistFirst World Radio

Share Article

NothingÂ?s as constant as change. But try to tell that to a high school kid, especially before he discovers heÂ?s going to bend time and even transform his shape, just by thinking about it.

George Parker’s new book, The Atomic Kid—Adventures in the Antiworld, is all about change. "Change is the metaphor at the heart of my book. We have to learn to accept change when we move from the protected world of childhood to the freedom of adulthood," says Parker. "The most prolonged and difficult rite of passage imaginable is high school, a microcosm for the trials and tribulations we face as grownups."

The Atomic Kid is about the power of thought and the ability of the individual to manipulate his/her future with imagination. As Einstein said, "Imagination is more important than knowledge."

In the story, John Smith is an ordinary high school kid trying to blend in when he inadvertently gets caught up in a diabolical nightmare, which turns into an adventure of self-realization. An evil scientist’s experiment thrusts John into the magical world of Antimatter, where a disembodied voice calling himself the Master of the Perfect Word teaches him about the art of change and growth and how to cope with his new super powers.
