We Dream of Space

By Erin Entrada Kelly
Cash, Fitch, and Bird Nelson Thomas are three siblings in seventh grade. In 1986, as the country waits expectantly for the launch of the space shuttle Challenger, they each struggle with their own personal anxieties. Cash, who loves basketball but has a newly broken wrist, is in danger of failing seventh grade for the second time. Fitch spends every afternoon playing Major Havoc at the arcade on Main and wrestles with an explosive temper that he doesn’t understand. And Bird, his twelve-year-old twin, dreams of being NASA’s first female shuttle commander, but feels like she’s disappearing. 

Congratulations Zim E., you are this week's Win it Wednesday winner!
