Read What Goes Up Online Free - Action-packed and wildly funny, this near-future sci-fi features three teens on an inter-dimensional mission to save the world.
Rosa and Eddie are among hundreds of teens applying to NASA’s mysterious Multi-World Agency. After rounds of crazy-competitive testing they are appointed to Team 3, along with an alternate, just in case Eddie screws up (as everyone expects he will). What they don’t expect is that aliens will arrive from another dimension, and look just like us. And no one could even imagine that Team 3 would be the only hope of saving our world from their Earth-destroying plans. The teens steal the spacecraft (it would be great if they knew how to fly it) and head to Earth2, where the aliens’ world and people are just like ours. With a few notable exceptions.
There, the teens will find more than their alternate selves: they'll face existential questions and high-stakes adventure, with comedy that's out of this world.

REVIEW: I received this book from Bloomsbury Publishing in exchange for an honest review.
I absolutely loved Katie Kennedy's first book LEARNING TO SWEAR IN AMERICA when I read it last year. Definitely one of my favorite Young Adult books of the year, I still recommend it to people. So of course I...

"For everything that went up, something had to come down. Eddie just didn't know why the thing that went down was always him."
This was the first book I've read by Katie Kennedy and I'm glad to say that I consumed it like there was no to...

Buy this book. It's light, fast-paced, near-future Science Fiction with well-rounded characters and very sharp, funny writing. In other words, the perfect summer read. I loved it. The way the Katie Kennedy blends science, philosophy & humor is so freaking entertaining I just can't get enough....

What Goes Up, by Katie Kennedy, tells the story of a girl named Rosa Hayashi and Eddie Toivonen as they each attempt to become one of the two people that make up a new NASA team designed to explore and find aliens.
I’m not sure if the writing style is my absolute favorite, as the descriptive words...

You will definitely need to suspend your disbelief for this story. I loved the energy and mystery of the first part of the book, but the second half fizzled a bit in its delivery and dialogue.
Still a solid science fiction read.

She has worked hard to gain her chance at NASA and despite the claims that it’s because of her famous science-y parents, that’s far from the case. Rosi...

I went into this book wary because I love speculative fiction and this sounded like the type of book I might enjoy, but it also had a so-so rating. I've learned in the past to not be too hyped up for a book that has a synopsis that somehow meets a bunch of my requirements for a good book.

I want to hang out with Katie Kennedy's characters. They're unapologetically smart, but never obnoxiously arrogant; they're vulnerable and believable; they're FUNNY. It's not easy to strike a good balance between SF, coming-of-age themes and comedy, but this book does it. Even when the plot gets...
