Small Fry Pick of the Week: See You in the Cosmos
See You in the Cosmos by Jack Cheng
All eleven-year-old Alex Petroski wants is to launch his golden iPod into space. With a series of audio recordings, he'll show other life-forms what life on Earth-his Earth-is really like.
But for a boy with a long-dead-dad, a troubled mom, and a mostly not-around brother, Alex struggles with the big questions: Where do I come from? Who's out there? And above all, how can I be brave?
Determined to find the answers, Alex sets out on an extraordinary road trip with his dog Carl Sagan-names for Alex's hero, the real-life astronomer. But his destination keeps changing. And the funny, lost, remarkable people he meets along the way can only partially prepare him for the secrets he'll uncover--secrets that will turn h is universe upside down.
