Mini Review: Disaster Strikes!

Jeffrey Kluger’s new novel, Disaster Strikes! The Most Dangerous Space Missions of All Time

Quick Review

This nonfiction collection of twelve disasters in space was riveting and insightful. I really enjoyed the way the author used some humor and more entertaining ways of telling these stories and this would appeal more to younger readers or readers who do not normally read nonfiction. However, combined with the humor were strong and detailed facts that really made these missions come to life. I liked that it included American astronauts and Russian cosmonauts. I can’t wait to get a copy for my classroom and use this in my lessons. 

Thank you for sharing an advanced copy with the Lit Review Crew.

I am a middle school English Language Arts and Social Studies teacher.
