                Cosmic,
by Frank Cottrell Boyce, is about Liam who is stuck in two worlds. Liams dad
was taller than Liam. Throughout the years, around 13 years old, Liam was
taller than his dad. Liam had to start shaving, and everyone had mistaken Liam
as an adult. Liam definitely hated it, if everyone was to take him as a normal boy;
he would love life way more. Florida, Liams best friend, had a dad that wasnt
around at all. Work for Floridas dad was torture. Florida never got to see her
dad. Florida and Liam had always wanted to go to space. There was a perfect opportunity.
You needed a parent chaperone and child. Liam and Florida had a brilliant idea.



                Liam
was listening to a radio station one day; they announced the trip to space if
you went online and filled out a survey to get to go to space. Liam went
straight to the computer and filled out the survey. A few days later, he got an
email back saying he was approved to go to a classified area, then space.  Liams dad wouldnt go even if he asked. Liam
told Florida about the trip.



                A limo
came by Liams house, picked up Florida and Liam, and they were off to the
airport. When they were done with the exasperating flight, they ended up being
in a desert. No one knows really where because it was a classified area. There
were three other Parent and child groups. One group was dirty rich, another
super genius, another athletic, and Liam and Florida, clueless. The four groups
will have to go through lots of training before space is even in mind. When
they are done with training, something that will blow your mind away happens.
Do they get to go to space? Are they stuck in the desert? Could it be with
Florida or Liam?



                This
book is so far one of my most favorites. The author really got me in the book, I
felt like it was glued to my hands. I had a hard time visualizing the book, but
when the author had said The space ship looked as if it was made in the
future. That got billions of ideas in my head. I really liked the ending of
the book. It really made me think so much, because of what happens. Frank Boyce
did a really good job telling who said what in the dialogue. I also liked how Frank
Boyce could easily make me infer what the four groups were, (Dirty Rich,
Genius, athletic, and clueless.) Over all I would rate this book 20 stars out
of 5. If you like adventure/ fantasy you would love this book. Ages 10+
