Alex is eleven years old and he’s fan of rockets. He has the plan to send his iPod to the space in a rocket made by him for the aliens to listen it.
His bestfriend is a dog named Carl Sagan, as his hero.
A trip to a rocket launch festival will change his life. He’ll make new friends and learn about life.
I liked a lot this book! Alex is a lovable, intelligent and brave boy who would achieve great things if he was real. He learnt to be very responsible and independent because of his family situation, and despite his innocence and that he easily trusted others he found good people who took care of him, that was good.
I thought that it was a great idea that the book was written as Alex recorded in his iPod. Also his goal to make a rocket and sending it to the space for making contact with aliens was great. In my opinion, he spent his time in an excellent goal.
Of the other characters the one I liked the most was Zed.
I completely recommend this book. It’s a lovely story to read. The only thing I disliked was one thing that happened with Carl Sagan but I can’t write it because it would be spoiler. Well, read this book! It’s great!
