One thought on “Racing the Moon, by Alan Armstrong

  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.
