Finn’s Rocket (S. Schreiber) Book Review Blitz.

Rocket-front cover

Finn’s Rocket is a story about kids going into space! One roller coaster read. What twists and turns…. Kids as astronauts!  This book has all of this and more. This is the first book of the Finn adventure series that I have read and once I got over the fact that it was a book that told a story about very intelligent kids I really enjoyed it.

Finn and his sister Gabi both join the Kennedy Space center for the holidays so both of them can do what they love. The twist in the tale is when he is unable to contact his sister and decides to investigate.

He has help from unexpected people and the takes off on an unforgettable adventure. The story teaches the readers about not giving up and working against the odds. The challenges Finn faces and overcomes are good lessons for the children.

Often we underestimate our kids and yet if we give them our support we would be surprised at what they can achieve. The book has all elements to make it a fun and fast read. The suspense, mystery and drama along with the mind blowing adventure will make any kid a fan of Finn’s Adventure. A good read.

Book Blurb : 

Finn’s Rocket–a surfer catches air (Finn’s Fast Books #3)by Serena Schreiber

Finn’s summer vacation plans didn’t include leaving the planet.
When he isn’t surfing or scuba diving, Finn likes building vehicles that go fast, while his little sister dreams of being an astronaut. So the two enroll at Kennedy Space Camp, where Finn can design rockets and Gabi can pilot them. But a shocking countdown is ticking behind the scenes, and Gabi goes missing.
Determined to find his sister, Finn searches for clues. As always, friends Axel and Burrito jump in to help him complete his mission, which takes them from Cocoa Beach Florida to Kiruna, Sweden. Lucky for Gabi, Finn will do anything and go anywhere to get her back–even the international space station.
Finn’s Rocket is a middle-grade novel appropriate for kids aged 10-14 or 5th-8th grade. This action-packed story contains no inappropriate language or graphic violence, although some characters do meet a sudden end. As with all of Finn’s Fast Books, #3 Finn’s Rocket provides a fast ride to adventure with a little science along the way–great for sneaking a little STEM learning into a young reader’s day.
