"A quick but lyrical character study."—Kirkus Reviews
"The sky proves no limit in Lukidis’s encouraging biography of Black female astronaut Mae Jemison."—Publishers Weekly

“This makes a good addition to STEAM literature.” — Booklist 

The true story of Dr. Mae Jemison, whose lifelong passions of science and dance prepared her to become a trailblazing astronaut.

Today, Dr. Mae Jemison is famous for being the first Black woman to travel into outer space. But when she was growing up, she felt torn between two passions: science and dance. It seemed like an impossible choice. There had to be some way to make room for both—and Mae found one. As an adult, she combined her gifts of scientific logic and artistic creativity and became an astronaut.
