Look up your book, click on the picture, then look in the blue box for "Have one to sell?

I read a book a while back about a boy who was obsessed with the idea of going to Georgia to see rockets fly. He had model rockets of all sorts, and always watched rocket tv shows and such. It all took place during the Vietnam War and his father was digging a bomb shelter outside, and his father became obsessed with the project, but something terrible happened. A boy that I think ended up having a mental disability wanted the boy's toy rocket, and he went to get it and the boy fell in the ditch that was going to be used for the shelter and was speared on a cast-iron foundation bar.
The boy's brother was devastated. He later found a stray dog and somehow figured out his brother's soul was in this dog, and the boy tried hitchhiking his way to Georgia to see the rockets. At one point he was taken into custody, and went on the news and eventually made it to Georgia. I also believe at one point the boys before the brother died had a secret hide out in the woods, and also at the end the dog leads the boy to the dead brother's toy in the mentally disabled boy's backyard.

It is the story of three friends - Laurie, an English boy who moved to a hill town with his parents, Anil, the son of a local cloth merchant, and Kamal, who lost his parents during Partition and now sells buttons and shoelaces.
