Simon Bloom:The Gravity Keeper

Simon Bloom: The Gravity Keeper by Michael Reisman
Sixth-grader Simon Bloom can’t believe his luck when he finds a book that enables him to control the laws of physics. By simply reciting the formulas it contains, he can cancel gravity to fly around his bedroom, or decrease friction so he can slide down the street as if he were on Rollerblades. When two thugs with evil intentions come after Simon, he must use the formulas to save himself and the book from falling into their hands.
Here's a quote from "Simon Bloom: The Gravity Keeper"
"You see, everything around you--everything in the entire universe--has rules. Laws. And the Books contain the laws. Explain them. Control them. In ways that even I don't fully understand, the Books make sure the Universe doesn't fall apart."
