This achingly beautiful novel considers how to measure love when it has the power to both save and destroy.Levon Grady and Samantha Vash are both students at an alternative high school for high-achieving but troubled teens. They have been chosen for a year-long project where they write their life stories and collect interviews from people who know them. The only rule is 100% confidentiality--they will share their work only with each other. What happens will transform their lives. Told from the perspectives of Levon, Sam, and all the people who know them best, this is a love story infused with science and the exploration of identity. In Love Is Both Wave and Particle, Paul Cody looks at how love behaves in different situations, and how it can shed light on even the darkest heart.

"Part romance, part psychological study, adult author Cody's first book for teens thoughtfully conveys Sam and Levon's complex mental states, the evolution of their relationship, and their journeys of self-discovery." --Publishers Weekly"Cody's first book for teens is engaging and well-written. . . . This is a novel for anyone interested in the labels we are given, and the ones we give ourselves." --Booklist"Told from the perspectives of the teens and their friends, parents, and teachers, this ambitious novel explores the characters' lives as friendship and romance blossom." --School Library Journal
