My son's best friend enjoyed this so much he lent it to him. My son loved it so much he bugged my daughter to read it and they couldn't stop talking about it at the dinner table. I always wonder how to get the two of them to talk but I guess this novel did it. They keep coming up with stories of what they think might happen next. It's so adorable. I gave it a bit of a read myself and it is well written and very imaginative. Thanks so much for the great book.

I have to tell you, as I was reading this book, my first thought was that it was the kind of novel that I would have read to my kids as they were growing up. That's what makes this a great family read, one that can be enjoyed by many ages, give the parents and kids something to relate to. Since I found my son reading this book, I figured I would read it, too.

The book hooked me immediately. Were the dreams that Robbie was having simply dreams, or could they actually be memories? And what was up with his parents? No wonder he would be dreaming a better family as he slept. So, I had to find out what was going on.

Because I don't want to be accused of spoiling this novel for others, just trust me when I say that I loved the futuristic setting, and the mystery surrounding Robbie. I think this could become an instant classic. And like the author's kids requested, it could become a movie in the near future. Can't wait for Book 2.

I wasn't exactly sure what this book would be, but after reading the description I decided it was worth a read and man was I impressed. Anybody who is a big sci-fi/Star Wars fan is sure to like this book. It has a deep message about liberty and freedom and still has a story that any young reader is sure to love. The plot is well written and faced paced, it really hooks you right from the right from the first chapter. Highly recommended to anyone looking for a book that kids will truly enjoy and respond to.

I bought this book for my middle school aged son because another boy at his school was reading it and recommended it for him. Of all of my kids, he is the least interested in reading so I was hoping that this book would keep him hooked.... The good news is that it definitely did! He loved it! He started reading it during the reading block at his school but ended up finishing it at home after school which is VERY rare for him. He loves sci-fi and really identified with Robbie, the main character in the book. I read the first few pages with him and the story is very well written with nice little illustrations at the beginning of each chapter. The reading level is definitely appropriate for pre-teen and teenage age kids and the story is very clever and original. He is very excited for the next book in the series - so I am I. This is a must buy for anyone who a child who is interested in science fiction and adventure books.

Mr. Arias has written a book that can appeal to young and old alike. This story is set in the not-too-distant future, and starts with a child's nightmare of a human/cyborg war a la Terminator style. When Robbie wakes up, he is not sure if what he dreamed is real or not. I won't give you spoilers, but needless to say it's very evident as you read on that several key points of the society he lives in are starting to closely resemble the political climate that has begun. The author has painted a very different view of the classical fascist/dystopian genre. I was extremely impressed.

A.J. Arias has created a fantastic series that draws you in from the very first page. This science fiction book reminds me of a cross between Harry Potter and The Matrix, similar to the Hunger Games. This book is written for anyone from ages 10 to 100 but still fits wonderfully into the young adult category. In this book, you are following the journey of Robbie Velez and his friends Louis, Scarlett, and Jazmin. The country has been devastated after the Cyborg War and science is the main focus for everyone. Imagination is unheard of and should never be used. Free speech is a thing of the past. Robbie has to discover his vital role in this society and quickly learn his place and who is the Key. I highly recommend this book and definitely a read for everyone. This is a fantastic first book in a series that will definitely be talked about for years to come.

Liberty and freedom... Science fiction... it all comes together in The Key to Rocket City. We follow young Robbie as he searched to find the answers to all his internal questions and doubts. When Robbie finds out that his parents might not have been who he thought they were, his world turns upside down. And after the Cyborg Wars, Robbie and his newfound group of friends find out the new human government cannot be trusted.

This book is a great read and written very well. The author brings the story to life through imaginative writing and true-to-life characters. The target audience of this young adult sci-fi adventure will absolutely love it!
