A heartfelt story about a boy who wants to become an astronaut, but wonders if his dreams can include his brother with special needs, perfect for fans of We Dream of Space and Song for a Whale.


All thirteen-year-old Houston Stewart has ever wanted is to become an astronaut. His dreams start to come true when he's accepted to the Junior Astronaut Recruitment Program—if only he could bring his brother Robbie, too.

Ever since their dad left, Houston and Robbie have been inseparable. But Robbie's Cerebral Palsy and epilepsy mean he needs medical attention at home, so Houston must take this leap for the two of them on his own.

At camp, Houston is quickly drawn into the orbit of new friends, cosmic adventures, and a long-lost grandfather who happens to be a famous astronaut. But the more he learns about space, the more he’s forced to reckon with the truth that making Robbie’s dreams come true may be an impossible mission . . . So he makes a new plan—one that shoots for the stars.
