Rocket Boys by Homer H. Hickam Jr.
Reviewed by: Hope Fox, KPL Patron
Rating: 5 stars
A powerful, luminous story of coming of age at the dawn of the 1960's, of a mother's love and a father's fears, of a group of young men who dreamed of launching rockets into outer space . . . and who made those dreams come true.
"West Virginia boys work on launching rockets in the small mining town. One boy finds himself finding his dream all the way to NASA".
