About the book:

AN UNLIKELY ASTRONAUT tells the true story of how Astronaut Susan Kilrain overcame all obstacles to achieve her dream of flying in space after growing up in a time when, as a woman, it seemed nearly impossible. Her story of unwavering determination will encourage children to reach for the stars even if the odds are against them. Perfect for ages 5-8.
