Abandoned by her husband after the birth of their child, Jane Dixon’s world is defined by her autistic son and the research she does to find a cure for his condition. She knows her work on animal intelligence may hold the key. She also knows that the research will take decades to complete. None of it will ultimately benefit her son.

All that changes when a lab rat named Einstein demonstrates that he can read and write. Just as her research yields results, the U.S. government discovers her program. The army wants to harness her research for its military potential. The CDC wants to shut her down completely. The implications of animal intelligence are too dangerous, particularly when the previously inert virus proves to be highly contagious.

She steals the virus to cure her son, but the government discovers the theft. She must now escape to Canada before the authorities can replace her son’s mental prison with a physical one. 


A researcher, Jane Dixon is working her best on finding the cure of autism for her son. Everything changes when the lab rat, Einstein starts responding to the virus that Jane is working on. Will this virus work on her son? Or will it destroy him? But when some of the research animals starts dying due to the virus, Jane out of fear that CDC will shut down her research, steals the virus and plans to quietly leave to Canada. But at the last moment, the CDC shuts down her research and arrests her, and her son, Robbie runs away from his home along with Einstein and the dog, Bear. Will he be able to save himself from the CDC? Or will the CDC find him and use him as a experiment?
I love sci-fi stories, and this one is very unique and I enjoyed it alot. I loved how Robbie changed into a normal kid when his mother injected him the virus. He became better at expressing his emotions and he became a really bold kid. Robbie had a wonderful bond with her mother so it was difficult for him to be on the run all by himself. You won't believe how Robbie survived from all the evil people alone.
Robbie is very adorable and he is the protagonist of the story. The whole story revolves around him being on the run. You will feel hundreds of emotions as you read about poor Robbie. But Robbie will have to pay the consequences because this virus could be the end of his life.
One amazing thing about this story is that it was very cinematic, and I felt like I was watching a suspenseful movie. A mother whose doing her best to find a cure for her son. Her son Robbie is on the run so the CDC can't find him and perform experiments on him. If the CDC didn't find Robbie in time, he will die.
Happy Reading! <3
