Book review: The Seventh Level by Jody Feldman
Travis is a typical seventh grade boy - he loves sports, can't sit still to save his life, and occasionally gets into trouble. He wants to become part of The Legend, the super secret, ultra exclusive secret society at his middle school. The Legend is responsible for putting on the most amazing events school-wide, which are not only fun but also give back to the community. When Travis starts receiving their signature blue envelopes, he knows he just has to solve the puzzles to be in. But when the orders start to seem mean, will Travis be able to ignore his conscience and see it through?
Why I picked it up: Honestly, only because it was sent to me. The cover isn't really appealing to me - it's all blue, with a background of some lockers, colorful text for the title, and a goofy-looking block person on the front.
Why I finished it: I really liked how Travis had a conscience and could tell the difference between right and wrong. Also, his friends were loyal, and the adults really cared about making Travis the best person he could be. I also wanted to know who was impersonating The Legend and why.
I would recommend it to: middle school boys, especially those who love mysteries and puzzles. Middle school girls might like it too, as Travis's best girl friend is pretty cool.
