But seriously, this story is wonderful. William Yuan, a seventh grader from Portland, Ore., designed a 3-D solar cell that not only absorbs visible light, but also UV rays.
Hey, you. Yeah, you four people that check out this blog. You should buy this book. Why? 'Cause it's written by the incredibly gifted Karen Andrews, one of Australia's many talents.

At the very least, go over and give her blog a look-see. You won' t be disappointed.
