Suggestions for fiction books to complement 5th grade Physics curriculum?

Our Principal is asking the 5th grade team to read a fiction book in conjunction with their science curriculum. They study Isaac Newton and basic physics. I have suggested a biography of Newton, but that's not exactly what they want. While there are plenty of non-fiction options, I am having trouble finding a fictional story that fits. Any suggestions?

Greetings Laura,

I'm Mike McQueen, teacher librarian and founder of http://www.GettingBoysToRead.com. Like many school districts, we are in a financial crises. Our school board recently proposed to eliminate ALL 20+ middle school teacher librarians and also cut all 90+ elementary schools to half time. Since we are the biggest district in all of Colorado, we worry this will cause other districts to follow suit. We launched an online movement and are going to do our best to put up a good fight. If possible, please visit our Facebook page and "Like" us http://www.facebook.com/SupportSchoolLibraries . Adding a positive comment and sharing with your friends would help our morale as well. The board finalizes the budget soon so your timely support would be greatly appreciated!

Sincerely,

Mike McQueen
