Lincoln and Gary are best friends planning a simple trip to the night rock in the sky. However, they quickly find out that “easier said than done” is far more than just an outdated adage; it is a reality, for the dreamers face obstacle after obstacle in trying to gather the materials they need to build their ship. Not only that, but when their plan is discovered, their two-man field trip becomes much more than that. Now, the captain and the general will have to lead a rescue mission, one of far greater importance than they ever imagined. What would you do? Save only yourself or risk it all to save the lives of others as well as your own?

Rocket Ship is the miraculous, thrilling story of two friends, a tale of two hopefuls, two dreamers, two rescuers and the extremes they go through to save one another and others like them, before the world they live in destroys them all.

Rocket Ship was an intriguing read I devoured in just a few hours. Being a seventh-grader is tough; both Lincoln and Gary agree on that. The two of them are best friends, although they’re as different as night and day. Both of them share a passion for the stars, and this is one of the things that bring them together. They’re both dreamers, wishers, and they’re not afraid to wish the impossible. Their current plans involve building a space ship and travelling to a night rock in the sky. Sounds impossible? Not for this duo.

But they face obstacle after obstacle while trying to gather the materials needed to build their ship. When their plan is discovered, it turns out they’re not the only ones who want to go on a trip to space. Imagination and creativity meet in this fast-paced adventure.

Lincoln was my favorite character of the two of them, although it’s hard to explain why. His personality was slightly more engaging. The author spends a lot of time developing the characters, showing their personality traits to the readers, and by the end, I felt like I’d known Lincoln and Gary for years.

This was a crzative, imaginative read. The writing was solid as well. Recommended to fans of young adult fantasy, and anyone who’s ever wanted to travel to the stars.
