Book Review - Cosmic

About the Book
Liam has always felt a bit like he's stuck between two worlds.   This is primarily because he's a twelve-year-old kid who looks like he's about thirty. Sometimes it's not so bad, like when his new principal mistakes him for a teacher on the first day of school or when he convinces a car dealer to let him take a Porsche out on a test drive. But mostly it's just frustrating, being a kid trapped in an adult world. And so he decides to flip things around. Liam cons his way onto the first spaceship to take civilians into space, a special flight for a group of kids and an adult chaperone, and he is going as the adult chaperone. It's not long before Liam, along with his friends, is stuck between two worlds again--only this time he's 239,000 miles from home. Frank Cottrell Boyce, author of MILLIONS and FRAMED, brings us a funny and touching story of the many ways in which grown-upness is truly wasted on grown-ups.

My Take on the Book 
As a fan of books, I am always looking for a new, fun and enjoyable read. This book fit into all three. What I liked most was that this book does a good job of weaving fun content and meaningful lessons for the reader. One of the largest underlying messages in this book goes down to the hear of parenting and showing the love of a parent through thick and thin.

The book was full of many laughs and surprises and I can honestly say that the book held my attention form the beginning. I can see this book being one that kids seven and up should like. 

Overall, a great book, with great messages and one that I would highly recommend, especially for the tween group out there!

If this book sounds like one that you would like in your own home you can find it on Amazon!
