Twelve-year-old Liam is tall for his age. Extremely tall. And he has facial hair. He's already mistaken for a grown-up on a fairly regular basis. So when he hears about a special spaceship flight for a group of kids and an adult chaperone, he decides to con his way on as the adult chaperone. It's a pretty cosmic experience-until the rocket gets stuck in space, 239,000 miles from home.
