EVERYONE IS AN ASTRONAUT by Corey Pajka
In 1986, a young man obsessed with space sets his sights on Earth. What he sees is his life in ruins and his family in fragments. He sets about trying to make things right, but when a space shuttle in Florida explodes just moments after takeoff, its a sign that his best laid plans are doomed to failure. The universe is indifferent, but maybe the order is in the chaos.
