Friday Memes: What Goes Up by Katie Kennedy

Happy Friday everybody!!
Book Beginnings on Friday is now hosted by Rose City Reader. The Friday 56 is hosted at Freda's Voice. Check out the links above for the rules and for the posts of the participants each week. Don’t dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

Beginning:
NASA stored the future in a hangar in Iowa.
Friday 56:
He leaned forward, angry, invading her space. "You invite the brightest high school students in the country to go through all this testing, and when you've found the best ones you mash their brains to pulp? That's counterproductive. It's illogical."
This week I am reading What Goes Up by Katie Kennedy. I got this ARC from Bloomsbury. Here is the description from Amazon:
Rosa and Eddie are among hundreds of teens applying to NASA's mysterious Interworlds Agency. They're not exactly sure what the top-secret program entails, but they know they want in. Rosa has her brilliant parents' legacies to live up to, and Eddie has nowhere else to go--he's certainly not going to stick around and wait for his violent father to get out of jail. Even if they are selected, they have no idea what lies in store. But first they have to make it through round after round of crazy-competitive testing.

And then something happens that even NASA's scientists couldn't predict . . .

From the author of the acclaimed Learning to Swear in America comes another high-stakes adventure that's absolutely out of this world.
