Fiction. Along with his dog, Carl Sagan, 11-year-old astronomer Alex Petroski is on his way to the Southwest High Altitude Rocket Festival. He's recording the journey on his iPod (just like he records everything) with the hope that it can be launched into space and heard by aliens. Through the transcripts of Alex's recordings, you can follow along as he makes eccentric new friends, travels to Las Vegas in search of his supposedly dead father, and realizes that family is more complicated than he suspected. If you like the memorable narrator in this offbeat road trip story, you might also enjoy Sally J. Pla's The Someday Birds.
