HOLD ZERO

KIRKUS REVIEW

Craig Sutton and three of his equally enterprising young friends three-stage booster rocket in a small New York state town. It will go up 2000 feet and they're ready to launch it when the father of one becomes alarmed and aroused. Officer Ricardo checks it through but doesn't understand it and the rocket is grounded (along with the active elements of the story) by the sluggishness of the committee appointed. The boys protest, staging a sit-in (or rather a sit-out) on an island where they have their hideaway; they finally get the approval and the blast-off is quite a success. Not A but almost, and certainly OK for this age group they will like the idea and the youngsters. Over.
