I love this review over on Amazon. 🙂
“I read Rocket Summer, by Chip Street, in one sitting. I just couldn’t tear myself away. It is very interesting to see how each kid deals with their lives, and to follow the progress of the rocket car. Their personalities are realistic, and each scene in this fabulous story is exciting. Wonderfully, I couldn’t predict the end, which made me want to read about it more! I would definitely recommend Rocket Summer to people my age, but I wouldn’t be surprised if an adult enjoyed it, too!”

4 kids. 3 rockets. 1 bad idea. For Lacey Patterson, it’s looking like another boring summer of doing chores and poking sticks at armadillos. Until she makes an exciting – and dangerous – discovery. When she stumbles across a crate filled with surplus military rockets, her and her best pal Kenny decide to do what any kid would do… build a rocket powered car on the outskirts of their tiny desert town.
