A space-obsessed boy and his dog, Carl Sagan, take a
journey toward family, love, hope, and awe in this funny and
moving novel for fans of Counting by 7s and Walk
11-year-old Alex Petroski loves space and rockets, his mom,
his brother, and his dog Carl Sagan—named for his hero, the
real-life astronomer. All he wants is to launch his golden
iPod into space the way Carl Sagan (the man, not the dog)
launched his Golden Record on the Voyager spacecraft in
1977. From Colorado to New Mexico, Las Vegas to L.A., Alex
records a journey on his iPod to show other lifeforms what
life on earth, his earth, is like. But his
destination keeps changing. And the funny, lost, remarkable
people he meets along the way can only partially prepare him
for the secrets he’ll uncover—from the truth about his
long-dead dad to the fact that, for a kid with a troubled
mom and a mostly not-around brother, he has way more family
than he ever knew.
For fans of Wonder and The Curious Incident of
the Dog in the Night-Time, Jack Cheng’s debut is full of
joy, optimism, determination, and unbelievable heart. To
read the first page is to fall in love with Alex and his
view of our big, beautiful, complicated world. To read the
last is to know he and his story will stay with you a long,
