Story Summary

Jimmy wasn't happy on Mars. He missed his friends on Ceres and felt like a klutz with Mars' heavier gravity. But when his new friend Tessa tells him about Astronaut Nick, a red-suited, rocket-driving legend that grants wishes to children on Christmas, he has a brilliant idea. Sadly, all he learns from Astronaut Nick is that you can't go home again. Or, just maybe, that your new home isn't so bad after all.
