I enjoyed this story and Nova's character immensely. I've never read a book about someone on the spectrum. Nova opened my eyes to a world of Autism I never dabbled in before. I remember seeing "special" kids in school who had their own classroom and teachers. They never mixed with the rest of us. More books like this would have helped me in understanding the autism spectrum and not feeling so awkward because I didn't know how to act around children so seemingly different from me. I loved the seamless interweaving of letters into this, dare I say epistolary, novel. With each letter I felt my hope grow and grow, waiting for Bridget to come home. The explosion of The Challenger led to an explosion of my heart when Nova ran away, right to the cross where the car accident took place that stole Bridget’s life. My heart soared when Nova finally accepted the love of her adoptive family. I was so proud when she hit her high moments and sunk low with her when she had her tough, bad moments. The author is on the spectrum, which made this novel even more authentic to me. She has Asperger’s Syndrome and teaches special education. She comes from an awareness that many people don’t have. I could not put this book down and have a bit of a book hangover from it as I write this. As a historical fiction fan, the interweaving of the historical elements behind the challenger along woth how people treated special education and special needs children was done extremley well.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this story. I adore the concept of having a non-verbal autistic child as the main character and me as someone who isn't on the spectrum but knows people who are gave me a better insight on what autism looks like through a child's eyes instead of an adults. ( )

I'm giving a lot of good reviews these days but I am reading lots of books that have already gotten starred reviews or are being talked about as Newbery possibles. This is another beautifully crafted book with so much feels - the story is told in the voice of 12 year old Nova, an autistic & mute foster kid who is obsessed with space & is impatiently waiting for her sister to return & watch the Challenger space shuttle lift off with her. --- For those of us who remember the shuttle launch with teacher Christa McAuliffe on board you know this story is going to have some heart-break in it.

I found it compelling & impossible to put down. ( )

Nova is a 12-year-old girl with autism and a limited ability to communicate. She is living with a foster family and misses her older sister Bridget who would read her “The Little Prince,” sing David Bowie’s “Space Oddity,” and teach her about space and space travel. The launch of the space shuttle Challenger is a much-anticipated event for Nova and Bridget. Bridget promised Nova that no matter where she is, she will come back and watch the Challenger launch with Nova. Nova clings to her sister’s promise. ( )
