Summary:  In the spring of 1947, outer space was an unexplored realm. But Alex and her impulsive brother, Chuck, believe that the stars are within reach. In the midst of building their own rocket, Alex befriends Captain Ebbs, and an army scientist who is working to create food for future space travelers, and who is also a descendent of Captain John Smith. Alex soon introduces Chuck to her new friend, and the trio’s shared interest in space travel sets off a series of adventures that the three will never forget.

  1. This might interest a future engineer or rocket scientist, but I think the characters are a bit unrealistic. I mean, what kind of boy would steal a plane? But not considering that, it was a fun read. Character development would probably the most distinguished, but I don’t think this should be a winner.
