I just finished reading this book, and I can't wait to tell you about it!
Imagine being 12 years old, but looking more like you're 30...and...imagine all the stuff you could do! ...like, pretend to be a teacher on the first day of school! ...or...talk a car salesman into letting you test drive a new sports car! Liam, the main character in Cosmic, does just that...and more!
Liam pretends to be his friend Florida's dad, and together they enter a contest...little do they know that the contest will end up taking them all the way to China, and then....into space! Liam, who is a self-proclaimed video game expert and in the "Gifted and Talented" group in school, thinks he knows all there is about being a grown-up, but finds out there's more to it than he realized...
To find out what happens, read Cosmic by Frank Cottrell Boyce.
At the end of the book, you'll find several links to some fun websites, like
NASA's Space Your Face
NASA Kids' Club .
