I read a book a while back about a boy who was obsessed with the idea of going to Georgia to see rockets fly.
Our Guide To 2017’s Great Reads
He had model rockets of all sorts, and always watched rocket tv shows and such. It all took place during the Vietnam War and his father was digging a bomb shelter outside, and his father became obsessed with the project, but something terrible happened. A boy that I think ended up having a mental disability wanted the boy's toy rocket, and he went to get it and the boy fell in the ditch that was going to be used for the shelter and was speared on a cast-iron foundation bar.
The boy's brother was devastated. He later found a stray dog and somehow figured out his brother's soul was in this dog, and the boy tried hitchhiking his way to Georgia to see the rockets. At one point he was taken into custody, and went on the news and eventually made it to Georgia. I also believe at one point the boys before the brother died had a secret hide out in the woods, and also at the end the dog leads the boy to the dead brother's toy in the mentally disabled boy's backyard.

Do you have any idea of the title or autor of this book?
Thank you! A young girl who lives on a ship. She fantasizes about being a princess. This book had to be from the 70's or 80's. I believe that the cover may be of a young girl laying on her bed. Possibly with her hair in two braids. In the 80's I read a book about a little girl who was made fun of by others for her big red hair, so she climbed a tree. I remember she looked in the mirror and I think she fell out of the tree and broke her arm. I don't remember the title or the author. I am looking for a book that I believe is a Christmas book.

Lauren Iungerich on Awkward 's themes . Series creator Lauren Iungerich spent time with actual high school students to elaborate the teen dialogue of the show.
Citing her writing influences, Iungerich said she likes Friday Night Lights : "What Jason Katims did in five seasons was utterly beautiful. The story and who the people truly were came first. That's what I sort of took away from it; to be so bold as to graduate people, and wrap up story lines or allow them to come back in organic ways and to fall in love with the new characters. I want to take a lesson from that. Moving forward, I'm going to take a note from the brave things that he did in that show. Awkward mostly received positive reviews for its first season. It's further distinguished by its focus on entirely recognizable teenage pains, as endured by an entirely recognizable teenager, Jenna Ashley Rickards.
Its other distinction: strong echoes of an older kind of storytelling, the sort whose characters grow and acquire depth. This is a lot to expect these days from TV writing of any kind, much less a series about teenagers—it's relief enough when it's not about vampires. It's the perfect blend of comedy and painful teenage awkwardness, and in the end, the title says it all. Curt Wagner of RedEye . The New York Post writer Linda Stasi gave the show a three stars rating out of four commenting "aside from the gratuitous sexual stuff, Awkward is a really good, funny, fun show".
However, Stasi mentioned "this just isn't the kind of thing you'd want to watch with your kids—nor want your kids to watch. It's not as good as any of those, but it's not as bad as Jawbreaker , which is in the same tradition. The character of Jenna Hamilton has received positive feedback.
Entertainment Weekly wrote Jenna "navigates the sharky waters of high school, friends, mean cheerleaders, and cute boys with a snarky voice-over that makes her—and Awkward. He explained "For all the times we've seen the high school outcast who feels alternately ignored and humiliated by her peer group, she has rarely been played better than Ashley Rickards plays Jenna Hamilton. Other characters' performances were also well received by critics. Kubicek appreciated that the show's villain, Sadie Saxton, is not "the typical perfect skinny girl" but "an overweight cheerleader who is popular only thanks to her parents.
