“The first night we read this at bed time, my 4-year-old daughter insisted on reading it twice, back to back. Last night, she did stories with her mother, and roped her into reading it to her twice as well. Definitely a new favorite in our house.”

“Rocket Summer is a real page turner (yeah it’s a cliche but it’s true), maintaining a pace that’s compelling and cinematic – it’s no wonder it’s being made into a movie. It’s just plain hard to put down. The main story about the rocket car is completely charming and engaging, and provides a crazy adventure that those 12 and up will dig. But it’s the subtler themes that really shine, and that (along with some truly Literary prose) is what elevates Rocket Summer into a more substantial book that will appeal to adults and older kids: coming of age, family, abuse, loss, trust, friendship, and first loves.”

A real page turner…
