WHEN KIDS TAKE OVER NASA was a finalist in ForeWord Reviews' 2011 Book of the Year Awards. WHEN KIDS TAKE OVER NASA follows five bright students on what begins as a school assignment and turns into an all-out mission to get America back into space! Grant, Christina, Kendall, Tica, and Jeremy visit the Johnson Space Center only to find it "mothballed and cocooned." When an ex-employee gives them a key, they enter the building and take control of the center!

When some unexpected helpers show up, the kids discover a new kind of physics, NASA secrets, the possibility of a real rocket launch on their watch, and that one of them has gone missing in a true "Houston, we have a problem!" scenario. Are they in over their heads? Absolutely. Sound out-of-this-world? Just wait to read about what happens after the kids take charge!

Written by award-winning author Carole Marsh, WHEN KIDS TAKE OVER NASA has been called "lively, well-written and educational" by Forrest Schultz of Southside Book Reviews, and Marsh has been praised for integrating real science and the history of the space program into a breathtaking and imaginative story.
