About Life on Mars by Jennifer Brown:
For fans of Frank Cottrell Boyce's Cosmic and Jack Gantos's Dead End in Norvelt comes a heartwarming story of true friendship-earthly or otherwise. Twelve-year-old Arcturus Betelgeuse Chambers comes from a family of stargazers and his quest to find life on other planets is unstoppable. But when Arty's family announces they're moving to Las Vegas, the City of Lights threatens to put an end to his stargazing dreams forever―especially when he has to stay with his scary next door neighbor while his parents look for a house. As it turns out, "Mr. Death" isn't terrifying at all―he's actually Cash Maddox, a bonafide astronaut! But when Cash falls ill, will Arty find the courage to complete his mission by himself? And might he actually prove, once and for all, that there is life on Mars?
"Will please middle graders seeking a funny story about a kid who loves outer space."-School Library Journal
"A cheerful story about family and growing up. Brown conveys Arty's observations and growth with wit, insight, and emotional honesty, and the numerous factoids about the cosmos should entice budding astronomers and neophytes alike." -Publishers Weekly
