11-year old Alex Petroski loves space and rockets. He lives with his mom, his brother, and his dog Carl Sagan(named after his hero) He always wanted to launch his golden iPod into space the way Carl Sagan (his hero)launched his Golden Record on the Voyager spacecraft in 1977. He traveled from Colorado to New Mexico, Las Vegas to Los Angeles, and recorded his journey on his iPod to show other extraterrestrial life how life on Earth is like. He meets remarkable people who can only partially prepare him for the secrets he’ll uncover about his lost dad during his search.
The story is very funny and gets more suspenseful the deeper you get into the book. I would give the book a nine out of ten because the author got my emotions to be a part of the story. I really recommend this book for kids between 10 - 14 year olds and who love comedy books.
