Laika - Nick Abadzis I stumbled across Laika thanks to Goodreads' recommendations. I had not heard of Laika prior to seeing this book, but was intrigued by her story and gave it a read.

Abadzis' gives us a retelling of Laika's story that weaves fact and fiction in a beautiful way. The story is complex - there are politics, ethics and personal relationships at play that make her story heart-warming and heart-wrenching all at once.

It has definitely prompted me to read more about the space race and the animals that were used in space experiments.
