I wrote another essay!

Book: See You in the Cosmos by Jack Cheng My Review: In "See You in the Cosmos", Alex Petroski goes to the Southwest High-Altitude Rocket Festival (SHARF) to launch his golden iPod into space. While he is there, he checks his email expecting a message from his friend Benji, but all that he sees is a notification from a website that automatically generates a family tree using government records. He signs into the website and finds out that there is a person with the same name and birthday as his long-dead father. After his failed rocket launch, Alex searches for his "maybe" dad. He thinks that his dad might actually be alive and that the person with the same name and birthday as is dad could be his dad. Alex meets many people along the way and uncovers many secrets. This story is very inspiring and I highly recommend that you read "See You In the Cosmos".  My Rating: ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ 5
