About the Author

Lauren Baratz-Logsted is the author of over 25 books for adults, teens and children, including the popular nine-book series The Sisters 8, which she created with her husband and daughter. Before becoming a writer, Lauren was an independent bookseller, Publishers Weekly reviewer, freelance editor, sort-of librarian, and window washer. She lives in Danbury, Connecticut, with her family and their cat, Yoyo. She still remembers watching the astronauts land on the moon.

Reviews

"Baratz-Logsted weaves in just enough history to root Mamie's story in her time, a moment when a nation came together and felt proud of human possibilities. . . . Readers will be charmed by Mamie's story of hope in a difficult moment in American history." --Kirkus Reviews

"Against the highly gendered backdrop of 1969 (all the girls want to marry astronauts, while the boys want to become them), Mamie's friendship with her neighbor Buster is particularly moving. Mamie and Buster share a fixation on the space race, and Buster remains loyal and constant even as Mamie's parents' conflict erupts. Mamie's isolation at home echoes Collins's solitude in orbit a bit too neatly, but her bravery and loyalty are memorable." --Publishers Weekly
