Review

Even though he’s only 12, Liam is constantly mistaken for an adult, but he’s still a kid who loves playing computer games and riding rollercoasters. His inquisitive nature and adult appearance often get him into trouble but his dad usually intervenes and helps him avert disaster.

When Liam wins a competition to try out the world’s greatest thrill ride, he and his friend Florida are whisked away to Infinity Park in China by the mysterious Dr Drax. The friends find themselves competing for the chance to be sent into space; soon Liam is playing a grown-up in a situation that his dad can’t save him from.

Fantasy is interspersed with reality in this funny and touching story, which ultimately celebrates parents and the love they give.
