An 11-year-old's insight into his life, the universe and many other things

See You in the Cosmos - Jack Cheng

 

 

This is the story of Alex going to launch his rocket in New Mexico at a rocket festival. With a dead father, uncaring mother and absent brother, he has learnt to deal with life on his own. The book is a journey in which Alex makes new friends and makes discoveries about how people behave.

 

Reasonably entertaining, this fits into this new genre of young adults telling their stories in a “charming” or “heart-warming” manner. It works well and is relatively engaging and well-written.
