We Are All Made of Molecules chronicles the story of Stewart and Ashley, complete opposites in a blended family. Stewart excels in academics but is unable to break the ice between himself and his new sister, Ashley. Ashley resents Stewart for the embarrassment he causes her. However, when her quest for popularity lands her in danger, she realizes that being popular isn't everything and having a brother might not be so bad after all. 

Opinion: 

I think this book handled controversial topics very well. The story is narrated by both Stewart and Ashley, so the reader gets to see their different perspectives on the events that take place. For example, Ashley is opposed to same-sex couples, Stewart is more open minded. For this reason, I did not find the book offensive or biased in any way. 

We Are All Made of Molecules adresses many topics that are very relevant in today's world, such as bullying, same-sex relationships, abusive boyfriends/girlfriends, divorce and popularity
