Nobel Genes - Rune Michaels. I meant it as a compliment, but I guess it wasn’t. Also by RUNE MICHAELS. She laughed, and then she stopped laughing and just looked at me funny, and then she started to cry and wouldn’t eat anything that evening.

It's tough to measure up to your parents' expectations.

His life consists of a series of halves; his genes are half from a donor bank that featured Nobel winners. After years of testing and tutoring, he only lives up to his mother's expectations halfway. He spends half his time sharing in his mother's manic ups and the other half in her depressive downs.

Nobel Genes by Rune Michaels - It's tough to measure up to your parents' expectations. I have a book filled with pictures and bios of Nobel laureates. The book was published ten years ago and lists everyone from the beginning of the Nobel Prize until the year it was published, so my dad is definitely in there. It sounds like a lot of people, but it’s not that many, actually.

Michaels explores dark themes with ruthless honesty. Nobel Genes by Rune Michaels is a clever, intriguing, captivating read. I read it in one sitting and will be thinking about it for a long time. The narrative is spare, the characters are beautifully portrayed as multifaceted individuals, and the premise is grim and wholly plausible. YA novels about mental illness are not uncommon, but this one of a child who seems anonymous to the outside world, who is never named by the author, and whose fate isn't ultimately wrapped up in a tidy bow will leave readers unsettled. The story, the characters, and the writing are equally awesome.

It's tough to measure up to your parents expectations. Imagine how much harder it would be if your mother told you that your biological father whom you'd never met was a Nobel prize-winning genius? NOBEL GENES is the story of just such a boy.

For a young boy who has always been told that he was conceived in a petri dish from genes donated by a Nobel Prize-winning father, living up to his dangerously unstable mother's expectations is difficult at best. As this taut and disturbing story unfolds, the young protagonist learns some unwelcome truths while coming to the conclusion that who he will be is something only he can determine. Teenage years are devoted to self-discovery. For a young boy who has always been told that he was conceived in a petri dish from genes donated by a Nobel Prize–winning father, living up to his dangerously unstable mother’s expectations is difficult at best.

It's tough to measure up to your parents' expectations. Imagine how much harder it would be if your mother told you that your biological father—whom you'd never met—was a Nobel prize-winning genius? NOBEL GENES is the story of just such a boy. His life consists of a series of halves; his genes are half from a donor bank that featured Nobel winners. After years of testing and tutoring, he only lives up to his mother's expectations halfway. He spends half his time sharing in his mother’s manic ups and the other half in her depressive downs. And he always has to be half-awake in the middle of the night so that when his mother wakes up and plays with her pills, he can count them and make sure the proper amount are still there before he goes to sleep. Perhaps him being a “Nobel son” is a dream. Or a hope. Or a delusion. No matter what it is to his mother, it becomes devastation when he learns that his genius history is a lie. And once the truth is revealed, there is no going back. Even when he thought he discovered the most important truth, in his dreams, he finds one answer that he never imagined. Does it matter who you come from? Or are we all just made from dust?
