    There s a laugh on every page of Joshua Levy s delightful debut sci fi novel for middle graders, and quite a few tongue in cheek critiques of our contemporary culture Although the story is set in the distant future, seventh grade hasn t changed much in spirit, except for a few sort of high tech gadgets and games of zero gravity dodgeball The school on a spaceship, PSS118, may be in orbit around Ganymede, but it s still recognizably run down and supply deprived the teachers are just as cranky, rule obsessed, or, in some cases, incompetent and cowardly and the kids are just as restless and bored with their unimaginative curriculum But protagonist Jack has plenty to keep him busy once alien Elvidians arrive to quarantine his school Jack and his buddies manage to catapult PSS118 into another galaxy, and then they ve got to figure out a way to get home again Along the way they have run ins with alien bureaucracy at its finest these aliens may be technologically advanced, but they re not always the brightest bulbs in the box visit a 700 story mall featuring s...

    This was so much fun Levy s book details the adventures of Jack, Ari, and Becka after they accidentally transport their schoolship into a hostile alien galaxy And yes, it s just as awesome as it sounds The voice was perhaps my favourite element of this book it s funny, clever, and totally organic The characters themselves are so loveable and distinct, with a great dynamic although I think the ship itself was my favourite And each page absolutely bursts with imagination gum chewing alien queens, massive pet dragons unleashed in shopping malls, a time travel arcade.I could go on and on Another thing I loved about this book was the confidence Sci fi often falters when authors try to over explain, but Levy added just enough terminology to make things believable whilst creating a fantastic, accessible world...

    What I LikedThe setting was great Believable and fun, the near ish future humanity society that s been set up is easy to fall into There is fun tech holographic wallpaper, 3D printer pens, sassy robots alongside very relatable modern day teen struggles The main characters are a great foursome I have included Doctor Shrew, the hamster, as a main character, because frankly the entire adventure would have frizzled to a halt without him What I Would Have Liked to SeeNothing much to request The ending is clearly a setup for a sequel or series, but it was well done and left just enough unanswered questions without leaving too much unaddressed.My Favorite The tech was a hoot Daydreaming about future advancements in technology is a fun pastime...

    What a wild and crazy ride Levy has taken sci fi tropes and turned them on their heads The year is 2299, and three well developed tweens Jack, Ari and Becca have to save their outer space school The fabulous concept is as fun as it is creative Levy s imagination has no bounds My personal favorite character is Dr Shrew, ...

    Do you know any fans of Percy Jackson or Star Wars If so then please put SEVENTH GRADE VS THE GALAXY in their hands, and they will love you forever Hilarious and hard to put down, this story is action packed with strong friendship themes Jack is a lovable, honest main character I started rooting for him on page 1 and never stopped I don t want to spoil any of the fun details and world building that make this book so memorable, but know there are a ton of awesome, quirky characters There are moments that will make you laugh out loud And the technology is astounding both in its coolness a...

    Wow SEVENTH GRADE VS THE GALAXY is full of so many amazing and fun sci fi references that I had to read it twice to catch them all Sharply crafted and full of wit, this book is an adventure As someone who attended P.S 6 in real life, I immediately connected with the heroes of SEVENTH GRADE VS THE GALAXY who go to P.S 118 A starship okay maybe a little different that plays a crucial role in this wild and futurist ride about friendship, family dynamics, future tech, alien invasions, arcades, and...

    I was incredibly lucky to read an advance copy of this book prior to publication Sure, it s a rollicking space adventure featuring P.S.S 118, a broken down middle school spaceship orbiting Jupiter s moon Ganymeade Sure, it features 3 funny 7th grade protagonists Jack, Ari, and Becka who have to save their school and all the people in it for space tastrophies Sure, the details and the writing are pitch perfect hilarious middle grade voice But what surprised me about this book is how it is filled with heart and human and non human connections what does it mean to be a friend, or a son, or a human being in the the vast universe Josh Levy manages to pull all of th...

    Imaginative and humorous, SEVENTH GRADE VS THE GALAXY had me laughing in every chapter Josh Levy brought together Jack, Ari, and Becka on a quest to save the PSS 118 from alien attack These three had the perfect MG banter one minute getting along fabulously, the next minute tumbling into disagreement sometimes hilarious, sometimes heartfelt Of course, things did not always go as they planned, and those scenes were some of the most ...

    What it s about Jack is about to graduate seventh grade That means finally getting to leave the broken down spaceship he s been going to school on for the past three years It also means a chance to see his father, who was thrown off the ship for experimenting on its engines without permission But right as the students are getting ready to leave for the summer, things get really strange Jack, along with friend Ari and enemy Becka, find themselves lost in space, surrounded by possibly hostile aliens, and trying to figure out how to save their classmates and get back home Summer vacation is not going as plannedWhat I thought This was a fun middle grades book The protagonist starts out pretty self centered, but as the story progresses, is able to see his actions and behaviors as being less than wonderful, and he learns from them The future world imagined by Levy feels just different enough to come across as believable, without being so different that it requires readers to completely reconceptualize their understanding of how the world works There is a great moment where Jack complains that the future isn t what he thought it would be because to him, flying around the Jovian moon Ganymede on a spaceship to attend middle school is just par for the course But even in this future, there are schools that are better and wors...
