Astronaut Dad is a coming-of-age story about the children of astronauts during the early 1960s right before the Apollo program took off. It's a fictional account of Jimmy Norton and Vanessa Kelly who discover that their dads, as Astronaut reservists, are actually part of a spy orbital program. In book 1, Jimmy and Vanessa uncover the mystery behind a fall-out shelter in the backyard. In book 2, tragedy strikes both families, and the two kids struggle with understanding their fathers. The story marks the transitions we go through with how we perceive our parents -- first as idealized heroes, then as the enemy, and later in life, to see them for who they are.
