Rocket is a small black girl who is always looking up at the sky planning for the day when she will become an ‘astronaut, star-catcher, space-traveller’ like African-American astronaut Mae Jemison. Rocket isn’t just a dreamer – she’s a doer, organising people to go to the park to witness ‘The Amazing Phoenix Meteor Shower’. Her mum says that her big brother Jamal must accompany her, but will he ever stop looking down at his mobile phone and look up and see the wonders of the sky that Rocket sees?
