I can't praise this book enough,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Rocket Boys (Hardcover)
I first came across this book after watching the film - "October Sky", that is based on the book. I thought the film was amazing but this is even better.
Hickam is such a good writer, and although the book is based on their rocketary adventures, it's all interesting, from his antics in school, to his strained family relationship.
This book is definitely worth going out of your way to read.
