This is an auction for COSMIC by Frank Cottrell Boyce.

Amazon.com reviews:

"Liam is too big for his boots. And his football strip. And his school blazer. But being super-sized height-wise has its advantages: he’s the only eleven-year-old to ever ride the G-force defying Cosmic rollercoaster – or be offered the chance to drive a Porsche. Long-legged Liam makes a giant leap for boy-kind by competing with a group of adults for the chance to go into space. Is Liam the best boy for the job? Sometimes being big isn’t all about being a grown-up."

"This book may be aimed at the 9-12 age bracket, but it's capable of being enjoyed by any age. Central character Liam, a boy so tall that people think he's an adult, is an entertaining narrator of the events that ensue when he pretends to be his friend's father, wins a competition, and jets off to China. His friend Florida, posing as his daughter, is to experience space tourism with him and a small group of other children from around the world, but of course it all goes wrong... The essential theme is the discovery by Liam of what it means to be a parent. The story is amusing and should keep most children, boys and girls, entertained up until the end. Thumbs up from this cynical adult."

"FIVE STARS!! This is a brilliant book for top-end juniors and above. It's the hilarious story of a twelve year old who looks like an adult and so pretends to be one, with the help of his Dad's handbook about "talking to teens". This is a great story for girls and boys, light-hearted from beginning to end. I loved it."
