STRXIA: THE ODDS ARE AGAINST US is a science fiction book with a target audience of elementary school students in the age range of eight to twelve. While first and foremost an action-packed portal fantasy, the plot of STRXIA is simultaneously designed to introduce readers to the basic principles of physics in an entertaining way, with an emphasis on Newton's laws of motion.
Seth Cox is a self-preservationist. He avoids roller coasters, sports, being outside and any form of confrontation. When Seth's well-meaning mom registers him for Little League Baseball, his world turns upside down; but not due to the game, because this season really isn't about baseball. Seth and three of his teammates have been drafted by their mysterious coach to enter Strxia, a parallel world facing certain ruin. Seth's plan to save Strxia relies on his own math expertise along with the distinctive skills of three of his teammates: Jared – all bravado, this talented pitcher can't seem to contain his temper; Alex – she is fearless and the fastest runner on the team; and Chase – a nonstop jokester with a talent for wrenching on cars. Join Seth, Jared, Alex and Chase on a daring mission to save Strxia. Does this group of misfits have what it takes to defy the Odds?
