Finn and Gabi live in south Florida and enjoy spending their time soaking up the sand and surf. However, this summer a new adventure is awaiting them. Gabi is heading off to Space Camp to pursue her dream of being an astronaut and Finn is off to a rocket competition after winning a school contest. Both of the kids begin having second thoughts about their new endeavors, but quickly discover the fun to be had.
Gabi's athletic abilities and intelligence make her stand out among the other campers and she soon finds herself undergoing training for a special mission. She's thrilled to have been selected and feels special, but things take a turn for the worse when Gabi turns up missing. Finn thinks he know where she is, but can he get to her in time?
Finn's Rocket is such a fun, action-packed adventure. The author's use of scientific facts as well as surfer lingo and knowledge lend a great deal to the story's credibility. I also found the characters to be appealing. I adored the relationship between Finn and Gabi as it reminded me of the closeness my youngest son and daughter share. The crazy Commander is the perfect villain. Her carelessness for human and animal life made me fear her and her latrine duty!
I have to add that I have not read any other books in this series, but was never lost or confused so it's a great stand alone book. Middle grade readers will definitely find Finn's Rocket an adventure not to be missed.
I highly recommend picking up a copy.
If your reader is interested in adventure, outer space, and extreme sports, then I highly recommend it to them. In fact, even if the reader may not profess an interest in astronauts, I would bet that he or she would enjoy this fast-paced book!
*I received an ARC in return for my honest review.
Finn and his sister Gabi both join the Kennedy Space center for the holidays so both of them can do what they love. The twist in the tale is when he is unable to contact his sister and decides to investigate.
He has help from unexpected people and the takes off on an unforgettable adventure. The story teaches the readers about not giving up and working against the odds. The challenges Finn faces and overcomes are good lessons for the children.
Often we underestimate our kids and yet if we give them our support we would be surprised at what they can achieve. The book has all elements to make it a fun and fast read. The suspense, mystery and drama along with the mind blowing adventure will make any kid a fan of Finn’s Adventure. A good read.

I am kind of torn about this book. It seems as if it can't decide if it is for the middle grade crowd, as Gabby's side of the story, and the cover art, is appropriate for, or for older teens as Finn's side of the story is. I do feel that kidnapping for unauthorized experiments and fatal terrorist attacks have little place in fun fiction for elementary school kids. That said, the story is action packed and always moving full speed ahead. The supporting characters add greatly to the story and the plethora of science and geography information included makes this a terrific adventure. Certainly it something the Jr High crowd and up will enjoy
