Cosmic by Frank Cottrell Boyce

Liam is only 12 but he looks like he's 30. Thanks to his hormones he is unusually tall for his age. Plus, he has begun to sprout facial hair. He uses this to his advantage, trying out things like taking a car for a test drive. But he really hits the jackpot when he qualifies to take his "daughter" to a new amusement park in China that will have the best rides ever. Liam gets his friend Florida to go along posing as his daughter. When they arrive at the park they discover that the new ride is a spaceship that will actually go into space with the children. When the director of the program reveals that one of the dads will get to go along with the children Liam works hard to make sure that he is the one chosen. But on their trip something goes wrong...
