Scott's Review:
4.5 out of 5 stars on February 6, 2000

I find autobiographies fascinating. It's always mesmerizing to get to live in someone's shoes for a while. Rocket Boys doesn't disappoint at all. Basically, it's the story of a kid in a coal mining town that grows up to be much more than was ever thought of him. That's not all though, it's a heartwarming story of a town dying, and how the inhabitants deal with a world that's changing around them. I highly recommend this book.
