Things happen pretty fast and they are almost all too good to be true. Even so, I particularly love the detail that Serena put into writing. It seems like the author is extremely passionate about the outer space and becoming an astronaut. For a book labeled as young adult, it felt more like middle grade level the way the characters talk and act in the story.
Disclosure: I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
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.
I was so impressed with the amount of scientific and technical information included in the descriptions about NASA procedures and training. It's written with such expertise that I didn't realize how jam-packed this story is with facts. The space adventure is definitely dramatic, although I will admit that the scenario is a bit far-fetched in places. But that's what makes it fun and it didn't stop me from enjoying the suspense.
On another level, the characters have wonderful depth, even the villians, and I could easily relate to the cast of likable characters throughout the book. (Finn's friend Burrito has got to be one of my favorites!) The bond between brother and sister is absolutely heart-warming and I was rooting for Finn and Gabi from the start.
I look forward to reading more from the author. Recommended.

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
