Title and Author:
Joss the Seven by J. Philip Horne
Name of Reviewer:
Reason for choice of rating:
Typical super hero typo stuff with fights, eminent danger, injuries but no graphic details. Some deaths but no gory details.
Well written story about a young man just completing eighth grade who has to learn how to deal with his newly discovered special abilities. He also has to figure out why he has these powers and who he can trust.
Lots of action and good supporting characters keep this story interesting and moving along. As an adult reader of this story, I appreciate that the parents are not doofuses and get involved (even though they are not happy with everything that has taken place prior to the time they become informed). So many stories leave everything up to the kids - regardless of whether that is realistic or wise.
Good story for middle schoolers
