This review is from: Rocket Boys [Large Print Edition] (Paperback)
When you read Rocket Boys, you soon realise that Sonny Hickham could be you; he's just a kid, but by sheer determination, he overcomes all adversity and - amazingly - really did become one of NASA's top scientists. An invitation into the mind of any small boy will always be funny, but this made me laugh out loud and by the end you will like him, flaws and all. Nearest comparison? Angela's Ashes with extra Disney, or the film Stand By Me.
