From well-respected author Rachel Coker, a dramatic tale of faith and friendship and clinging to hope when life seems impossible. From the gifted teen author of Interrupted comes a story for young adults of a girl who searches for hope even as she discovers the sacrifice that love and family can require. In 1960s rural Georgia, sixteen-year-old Scarlett Blaine must watch over her autistic brother as her hardworking blue-collar parents struggle to make ends meet. But when her brother's selfless wish inspires Scarlett to make his dreams come true as well, they sell homemade peach pies to raise money to build a "rocket" to Jupiter. Along the way, she must find a deeper faith in herself, her family, and God. Rachel Coker's newest book appeals to her own generation in unique ways. Teen girls can relate to the tale of young love and maturity gained through hard times, and a heroine who remains strong and confident through real struggles. Parents appreciate the strong values and positive outlook the book presents. It's a book everyone can agree on from a fresh, up-and-coming voice.
