him to tap the weak spots in each of the principal characters. The youngsters know that Abbott has a short fuse. Jimmy's quest is to befriend him, though Abbott's intimidation frightens and stifles him. As a backdrop to the novel, Launching uses the legacy of the late 1950's: the race for space, as well as, issues of racial change in a small community in the south. The specter of John Charles Abbott evolves into a wider, deeper consideration of the treatment of others regardless of gender, race, or outlook. A summer escapade, a science project, and a love affair, each contribute to a conclusion that leaves the young people facing an uncertain, yet challenging, future. Launching continues a story begun in Meyer's earlier book, Slow Slow-Quick, Quick (2001, 1stBooks).
