What Goes Up by Katie Kennedy
Everyone knows the law of gravity: what goes up must come down.
What Eddie doesn’t understand is why the thing that goes down always has to be him. With nowhere else to go, Eddie applies to NASA’s mysterious and prestigious Interworlds Agency tryouts, alongside hundreds of the nation’s best and brightest teens. But his troubled past and his aggressive instincts are forces that will either make him or break him.
Rosa has felt the pressure of her brilliant parents’ legacies her entire life. Although she doesn’t know exactly what being a trainee for the Interworlds Agency entails, she’s determined to survive and excel in round after round of crazy-competitive—and sometimes dangerous—testing to earn her spot, no matter what it takes.
And then gravity flutters. Eddie and Rosa know it probably shouldn’t do that. And when something happens that even NASA’s scientists couldn’t predict…Eddie and Rosa are swept up in another crazy and dangerous test of their instincts and determination.
From the author of Learning to Swear in America comes another action-packed and wildly funny story of two teens on an adventure that’s absolutely out of this world.
