Publisher Description

Discover what it's like to spend a year in space in this awe-inspiring memoir from a real-life NASA astronaut who did just that!

Prepare to blast off with astronaut Scott Kelly as he takes readers on a journey through his year aboard the International Space Station and his life prior to becoming a true American hero.

Discover the extreme challenges of long-term spaceflight, the pressures of living in close quarters with people from many countries, the extremely dangerous risk of colliding with space junk and the unnerving feeling of not being able to help if tragedy strikes at home. Find out the story of Kelly's childhood, his struggles in school, and ultimately the inspiration that sparked his incredible career, and the training to become a test-pilot and then astronaut.

This personal and fascinating story, newly adapted for young readers from the New York Times bestseller, will encourage aspiring astronauts and young readers everywhere to believe in the impossible and reach for the stars.

Kelly San shared the right stuff!

What a great story of a kid finding what he wanted to do and doing it very well. Step by step he achieved each level needed to get himself to space; then stayed for a year. Incredible true story of one lucky twin.
