A fun 5th-6th grade level science fiction novel about creating solar systems. It turns out that the Dark Matter of the universe hides the immortal people who keep the universe working properly. A human girl on Earth accidentally sees one of the immortals at work through her telescope and so the entire Earth and Solar System are destroyed and she is transported to this immortal realm. This seems silly, especially when we realize that the story is actually being narrated by Joss, the Seventh Son of the Supreme Overlord of the Universe. It is his job to reverse the destruction and find a way to bring the Earth back. In spite of the silly setup, the author manages to pull the story in a somewhat more sensible direction. A benefit from the story is a lot of real physics that might inspire young readers to get more interested in astronomy and cosmology.
