I think I heard about See You In the Cosmos in a Book Riot Kids email, which landed it on my Top Ten Tuesday list of books to read this summer.
See You in the Cosmos follows an 11-year-old, Alex, who has free reign of his world, and is obsessed with outer space. He’s recording sounds to send to outer space on his golden iPod, which he’s going to do from a rocket launching competition. It becomes a road trip novel, where Alex finds a whole lot more than he intended, including family.
#bookaday See You In the Cosmos by Jack Cheng. #SNRtbs Amazing! I don’t have words to express how much I enjoyed the audio production of See You in the Cosmos. I definitely think I enjoyed it more than I would have enjoyed the print edition. I might also be a sucker for stories told like radio programs. I felt like I was listening to Alex‘s iPod recordings as he went on his adventures. My heart broke for him too, and was thankful he met solid people along the way. Get the audio if you can!
