Scarlett Blaine’s life in 1960s Georgia isn’t always easy, especially given her parents’ financial struggles and the fights surrounding her sister Juli’s hippie lifestyle. Then there’s her brother, Cliff. While Scarlett loves him more than anything, there’s no denying his unique behavior leaves Cliff misunderstood and left out. So when he wishes for a rocket to Jupiter, Scarlett agrees to make it happen, no matter how crazy the idea might be.

Raising the rocket money means baking pies, and the farmer’s son, Frank, agrees to provide the peaches if Scarlett will help him talk to Juli. The problem is, Scarlett really enjoys her time with Frank, and finds herself wondering if, someday, they could be more than friends. Just as she thinks everything might be going her way, Cliff suffers an accident that not only affects the rocket plans, but shakes Scarlett’s view of God. As the summer comes to an end, Scarlett must find a way to regain what she’s lost, but also fulfill a promise to launch her brother’s dream.

About the Author:

Rachel Coker is a homeschool student who lives in Virginia with her parents and two sisters. She has a passion for great books and has been surrounded by them all her life. In fact, as a young child, Rachel helped her parents in a family-run Christian book business. Her gift for writing became apparent at the age of eleven at which time her parents signed her up for a year of lessons with a professional writing coach. When she is not writing or playing the piano, Rachel enjoys spending time with her family and friends.

From Booklist:

Sixteen-year-old Scarlett Blaine has her hands full. Both her parents work hard just to put food on the table (though the cooking frequently falls to Scarlett). Her grandfather lives with the family because of his dementia. Her older sister, Juli, is a hippie, and her 10-year-old brother, Cliff, is peculiar—making lists, not wanting to be touched, having spells of silence, and wanting to build a rocket that will take him to Jupiter. To support his dream, Scarlett decides to sell peach pies to help him build it. Handsome, quiet Frank will help, too, and conveniently, his dad owns the peach orchard. Set in rural Georgia in 1969, there are real issues here (many contemporary readers will recognize Cliff’s challenges as Asperger’s) and romance as well. This excellent story about first love, family ties, and what matters most is the second novel by the 17-year-old author of Interrupted (2012). Grades 8-10, --Melissa Moore
