A space-obsessed boy and his dog, Carl Sagan, take a journey toward family, love, hope, and awe in this funny and moving novel for fans of Counting by 7s and Walk Two Moons. ~ Goodreads
Eleven-year old Alex Petroski is Jack Cheng’s charming and peculiar half-Filipino narrator for his debut novel, SEE YOU IN THE COSMOS. Alex records his multitudinous thoughts and adventures –he records everything– on his golden iPod. He dreams of launching a rocket and taking his golden iPod into space, with the same intentions as his idol Carl Sagan, who launched his Golden Record on the Voyager spacecraft in 1977. So determined, Alex went to the Southwest High-Altitude Rocket Festival in New Mexico with only his dog Carl Sagan (named after his idol, of course) to tag along.
All eleven-year old Alex wants is to launch his iPod into space...#SeeYouInTheCosmos 🚀 https://t.co/IeL2Qj5mgE #OutOfThisWorld @jackcheng pic.twitter.com/5XhgF9JEdd— PuffinBooks (@PuffinBooks) March 20, 2017
