The War on Science Goes Batshit

By Allen J. Woppert

Young adult | Paperback, eBook


The town isn’t on most maps, probably because the map makers assume it’s a joke. But it’s no joke when an all-out battle between religion and science breaks out at Batshit High. And science geek Timothy Thompson is right in the middle of it! Timothy isn’t about to stand for it when his biology teacher tries to introduce “intelligent design” — the biblical story of creation — as science. But when you take on those who wage war on science, you’d better be prepared to face the consequences. Will Timothy survive his freshman year at Batshit High? Suspenseful, entertaining and filled with wry humor, this novel isn’t just about the battle between religion and science. Woppert’s debut novel is also an endearing coming-of-age story about ordinary and extraordinary teens experiencing their first year of high school, the bonds and insecurities of friendship, and first love.

I was born and raised in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, where I survived high school relatively intact and went on to earn a BA from the University of Wisconsin’s Madison campus. I spent my junior year of college abroad, in Bonn, Germany. After graduation, I taught in the U.S. for a year, then another year and a half in Germany. After that I went into publishing. I’ve written or co-written dozens of textbooks and short works of fiction for people learning English. Currently, I write short stories and young adult fiction. Prompted by the regular attempts by Christian fundamentalist groups to usurp American science education, I wrote The War on Science Goes Batshit as my own response to the war on science and reason. When I’m not writing, I travel as much as possible. I’ve seen big chunks of the U.S. and Western Europe, bits of Eastern Europe and Asia, and much of South America. My favorite destinations include Peru, where I’ve spent several months, and the Galapagos Islands.
