What Goes Up by Katie Kennedy

what goes up

Action-packed and wildly funny, this near-future sci-fi features three teens on an inter-dimensional mission to save the world.Rosa and Eddie are among hundreds of teens applying to NASA's mysterious Multi-World Agency. After rounds of crazy-competitive testing they are appointed to Team 3, along with an alternate, just in case Eddie screws up (as everyone expects he will). What they don't expect is that aliens will arrive from another dimension, and look just like us. And no one could even imagine that Team 3 would be the only hope of saving our world from their Earth-destroying plans. The teens steal the spacecraft (it would be great if they knew how to fly it) and head to Earth2, where the aliens' world and people are just like ours. With a few notable exceptions. There, the teens will find more than their alternate selves: they'll face existential questions and high-stakes adventure, with comedy that's out of this world., Rosa and Eddie are among hundreds of teens applying to NASA's mysterious Multi-World Agency.
