If You Have an 8 Year old (and older) then Sci-Fi Junior High is for You

My son loves to read, but he’s picky. Not only is he picky, he’s a fast reader, so we run out of books at a rapid click. Books need to be borrowed from the library, school, and friends. Book stores need to visited. It’s a constant effort. Given that, when I find a book that we both love, I need to share it with everyone! Sci-Fi Junior High is one of those books! Presented by James Patterson’s new children’s imprint, this gleefully illustrated space adventure is a laugh on every page. It’s a lot of laughs, especially for my picky 9-year-old baby! Here’s a bit about the book:

Kelvin Klosmo isn’t just the new kid at school – he’s the new kid in the galaxy! Welcome to Sci-Fi Junior High: an inter-galactic space station with students of all shapes, sizes, smells, and… slime content. As the son of Earth’s two most famous geniuses, Kelvin isn’t just the smartest kid in the world….he’s the smartest kid in the UNIVERSE. At least, that’s what everybody at Sci-Fi Junior High thinks.

So, maybe Kelvin lied a little about being a genius to fit in. And maybe a mad scientist is about to take over the universe unless Kelvin can stop him. Maybe everyone is doomed.

Well, at least Kelvin won’t have to worry about math homework anymore.

Sci-Fi Junior High is an out-of-this-world story about friendship, accepting our differences, and the fight against evil… bunnies. Yes, evil bunnies – don’t ask.

In stores now!!! For Ages 8+.

    Good way to get things to think for themselves outside the box. Science fictions tends to make a reader do that. I like these books. Might have to get some for my little loved ones.

    I have relatives and neighbor’s children that are close to 8 years old. Several of the avid readers have trouble finding new books to read. They sometimes read their older siblings book assignments for school and often face punishment or disciplinary actions for reading books above their grade level. It infuriates me that they are punished for reading above their age group. They should be guided and nurtured to find more books, no matter what grade level.

      Deborah, that is ridiculous! My son is in second grade in an accelerated class that does 3rd grade work. If he was limited to 3rd grade level books he would be bored senseless and probably wouldn’t read all that much. How counterproductive that school is!
