Kivlighan de Montebello’s engaging young voice embodies 11-year-old Alex Petroski. Alex is obsessed with space travel and recording Earth sounds on his iPod, modeling his hero, astronomer Carl Sagan’s golden records on the Voyager spacecraft. Alex’s recordings become the account of his rather bizarre solo trip from Rockview, Colorado, to Albuquerque, New Mexico, to launch his rocket at SHARF (Southwest High Altitude Rocket Festival). From this point, Alex’s story spirals into an oddly endearing travel tale of friendship and family. The episodic action—which includes narrators Brittany Pressley, Graham Halstead, Michael Crouch, Jason Culp, and others as supporting characters—makes it easy to suspend disbelief and renders this an altogether captivating listening experience.
