"At its heart, this is a classic middle-grade plot of a kid frustrated by being underestimated by a parent, but the space setting makes it a genuine thrill. Perfect for kids who loved Jennifer L. Holm’s Lion of Mars."
Booklist, Starred Review!
"A tender story that explores the complexity of familial bonds as deftly as it does the outer regions of space."
"[B]uoyant.... There aren’t terribly high stakes in this novel, and that’s perfectly okay—a few days away from one’s usual routine can spark a lot of new understanding and inspiration."
