Summary

Laila Fortuny has just obtained her high school degree when her parents lose their job. She goes to work as a waitress at the CERN, the famous Nuclear Research Center close to Geneva, to pay for her studies. There, she finds Alessio, a young intern journalist, annoyed about spending the summer in «the most boring place in the Universe». One day, Laila’s heart goes upside-down when she meets Brian, a PhD student who has been in Los Alamos, New Mexico, where military plans are conceived. Her new friend offers to show the Research Center installations while explaining the secrets of quantum physics to her. Laila is fascinated by the young scientist, who seems to be impervious to her charms. At her job, while serving menus daily to hundreds of awkward scientists, Laila is trapped between Alessio’s untimely rapprochements and Brian’s digressions about the cosmos. Waiting for the first kiss, during the most exciting summer of her life, Laila will discover that science can be attractive and love is the most powerful energy in the universe.

    Sonia Fernández-Vidal is a Spanish writer and physician. She is a graduate in Physics from the Autonomous University of Barcelona, with a PhD on Information and Quantum Optics. In 2003 she worked at the European Center for Nuclear Research (CERN).

    She combines her research with teaching — both at university and schools for adults. She has published two works of fiction using her scientific knowledge to enrich the plot. Two titles have been particulaly successful: QUANTIC LOVE and LA PUERTA DE LOS TRES CERROJOS (THE DOOR WITH THREE LOCKS), published in six and eleven languages respectively.
