Chilling, powerful, and moving. This dystopian Printz Honor is worthy of its award.

In the alternate timeline of this novel it's 1956. The Nazis won WWII and England, like the rest of Europe, is full of poverty, misery and fear. Cruelty and harsh violence reign. Yet, as Standish Treadwell tells his story he has somehow managed to remain kindhearted and full of whimsical imagination. He and his best friend Hector dream of moving to the land of Croca Colas and imagine building a spaceship to fly to Standish's creation Planet Juniper.
The story of how they discover the truth behind the Motherland's upcoming moon landing will draw you in. At times difficult to listen to, it is chilling, powerful and moving.
