It seemed so logical at first. Fourteen-year-old Lenny Cyrus had loved Zooey Andrews since third grade. All the boy genius needed to do to win her heart, surely, was shrink down to the size of an amoeba, ooze into a gelatin capsule, and have his friend Harlan slip it (him!) into Zooey’s Diet Coke. Told in three voices, this fantastical middle grade novel takes Lenny deep into Zooey’s loud, splashing innards, where a talking astrovirus named Astro has a bad attitude about white blood cells (“self-righteous pus-bags”) and aromatic hormones disco dance. The question is, will Lenny and Zooey survive his crazy experiment in nanotechnology?

            Zoey Andrews gets sick from the outside, because caffeine molecules are dying in her body from this ugly virus

              this book is fascinating. The reason why I say this is because science is interesting and fun. The book is about a boy named Lenny who likes this girl called zoey Andrews. He makes a science invention wear he shrinks into micro size. He goes inside of zoey Andrews body when she is drinking from her diet coke. He explores her body, and attempts to find her brain. Lenny wants to go to her brain to find out if she likes him, or can change her mind??? Can he?
