Description

"I haven't read anything that has moved me this much since Wonder." --Jennifer Niven, author of All the Bright Places

A space-obsessed boy and his dog, Carl Sagan, take a journey toward family, love, hope, and awe in this funny and moving novel for fans of Counting by 7s, Walk Two Moons, and The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time.

11-year-old Alex Petroski loves space and rockets, his mom, his brother, and his dog Carl Sagan--named for his hero, the real-life astronomer. All he wants is to launch his golden iPod into space the way Carl Sagan (the man, not the dog) launched his Golden Record on the Voyager spacecraft in 1977. From Colorado to New Mexico, Las Vegas to L.A., Alex records a journey on his iPod to show other lifeforms what life on earth, his earth, is like. But his destination keeps changing. And the funny, lost, remarkable people he meets along the way can only partially prepare him for the secrets he'll uncover--from the truth about his long-dead dad to the fact that, for a kid with a troubled mom and a mostly not-around brother, he has way more family than he ever knew.

Jack Cheng's debut is full of joy, optimism, determination, and unbelievable heart. To read the first page is to fall in love with Alex and his view of our big, beautiful, complicated world. To read the last is to know he and his story will stay with you a long, long time.

A delightful reading
By: Nadia Karina

I’m an adult, but I enjoy this book very much. I’m so glad I purchased this. This book is about an adventure of a young boy alongside with his dog (I’m thrilled already). A young kid who is innocent, cries when he’s sad, laughs when he’s happy, loves his family, friends, and dog very much (he doesn’t need a girlfriend to be happy, yay!) Of course during their journey they found and experienced various interesting events. The story is unpredictable, but so good. For me, it is hard to find a good book with a young kid as the central character, so I considered this as one of my fave book

4 Stars reading
By: Vivin Chen

This book so amazing. First, I think this book pure of sci-fic but I was wrong. I couldn't guess the main conflict and the 'sweet' ending. Eventhough, I didn't cry when reading this book, but I felt sad for Alex.

My name is Alex Petroski
By: Dian Achdiani

Cerita tentang Alex Pretoski, sebelas tahun, punya seekor anjing Carl Sagan, dan dia--Alex, bukan Carl--punya ambisi meluncurkan roket dengan membawa rekaman suaranya dalam iPod. Format ceritanya unik, POV seorang anak sebelas tahun--direkam dalam iPod. Dengan demikian cerita bisa melebar ke aana ke mari, sesuai apa saja yang sedang dipikirkan Alex. Alex terbiasa menyiapkan makan sendiri, membereskan rumah sendiri, sementara ibunya seperti tak acuh, hanya menonton acara kesukaan di televisi. Kemudian Alex berniat pergi ke SHARF, Southwest High-Altitude Rocket Festival di New Mexico. Dengan mudah ia mendapatkan ijin. Dari situ kita bisa menebak, kira-kira seperti apa keadaan jiwa...

ibunya. Dengan mudah kemudian Alex berpetualang, menuju SHARF dan bertemu dengan orang-orang dewasa, dan anak-anak dengan orangtuanya. Ia juga kemudian melanjutkan petualangannya setelah ia berhasil mencari jejak ayahnya via Ancestry.com. Gaya bercerita yang unik. Apalagi kemudian beberapa rahasia terkuak. Hanya satu yang agak menyebalkan menurutku, IMHO, Alex ini kok agak mudah menangis ya? Agak mudah, begitu. Selebihnya, ceritanya enak diikuti.
