Synopsis: In 1969, the launching of the Apollo 11 moon rocket fuels ten-year-old Annie's dream of becoming an astronaut, but problems at home make her realize that it will take hard work to make her dream come true.

From School Library Journal: Grade 4-6-Annie Armstrong, 10, who wants to be an astronaut when she grows up, is excited because the first mission to the moon is about to be launched. Her parents are more concerned with worries about money and their teenaged son, who wants to be a jazz musician. When Matty comes home with a piano he has bought on credit, his father makes him return it. The boy leaves home, only to reappear when given a chance to play a concert grand in a neighborhood talent show, which Annie has arranged to take place at an elderly neighbor's home. The plot and resolution are contrived: when Mr. Armstrong hears Matty play, he is reconciled to his son's musical future; and the lonely, reclusive neighbor suddenly opens himself up to his community. Both Annie and her brother's dreams, symbolized by the flight and landing of Apollo 11, form the theme of the novel. Although the present-tense dialogue often reads like the stage play form in which the story first appeared, there is promise here. Annie is a believable, likable girl, and her relationships with her family and friends are realistic and amusing. The characters are memorable, and the story does present a picture of growing up poor in the late 1960s.
