This was an amazing book about reaching for your dreams when life gets in the way. This book takes you on an emotional journey along with the main character Alex. The cast of characters pull you into the story and at times make you dislike them. Alex is eleven and is working on his dream of launching his golden Ipad into space in a homemade rocket. His journey at times is heartbreaking, however he also has wonderful experiences along the way. This story is messy and doesn't come to a clean ending. It is worth the read and it is an easy read. I recommend this book to anyone 6th grade and older.
