It's 1969 and the country is gearing up for what looks to be the mostexciting moment in U.S. history: men landing on the moon. Ten-year-oldMamie's class is given an assignment to write letters to the astronauts. All the girls write to Neil Armstrong ("So cute!") and all the boyswrite to Buzz Aldrin ("So cool!"). Only Mamie writes to Michael Collins, the astronaut who will come so close but never achieve everyone else'sdream of walking on the moon, because he is the one who must stay out in space with the ship.
After school ends, Mamie keeps writing toMichael Collins, taking comfort in telling someone about what's going on with her family as, one by one, they leave the house thinking thatsomeone else is taking care of her--until she is all alone except forher cat and her best friend, Buster. And as the date of the launchnears, Mamie can't help but wonder: Does no one stay with the ship anymore?

With I Love You, Michael Collins, Lauren Baratz-Logsted has created a heartwarming story about family and being true to yourself.

A Margaret Ferguson Book

"Baratz-Logsted weaves in just enough history to root Mamie's story in her time, amoment when a nation came together and felt proud of humanpossibilities. . . . Readers will be charmed by Mamie's story of hope in a difficult moment in American history." --Kirkus Reviews
