An 11 year old boy, who is too big for his school blazer and looks much older than he is, competes with a group of adults to lead a space mission.

Long-legged Liam is too big for his boots, 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 roller-coaster or be offered the chance to drive a Porsche. How will he fare when he tries to con his way into leading the first spaceship with a group of kids on board into space?
Is Liam the best boy for the job? Sometimes being big isn't all about being a grown-up.
