A universal story about speaking, listening and being heard.

Margot loves space. Astronauts, the stars, and especially the moon landing. So she can't understand why all of her attempts to communicate her passion fall on disinterested ears. Her mom is patient but distracted; her classmates would rather play kickball; and her teacher just wants her to focus and pay attention in class. Even so, Margot wishes she never had to talk about anything but space ever again.

When she wakes up one morning and discovers she can only recite Neil Armstrong's famous speech from the moon landing, Margot realizes she has an even bigger problem. How can Margot get everyone to pay attention and--more importantly--to hear what she's really trying to say? This powerful picture book debut plays with themes of listening and communication to highlight the importance of a space of one's own, no matter what your passion may be.
