Hello! My name is Joshua and my mom is the owner of this website. Since I am homeschooled, I have to read a lot. A lot. When she got this book, she said I would like it. She was right but I did not know I would be blogging on it. No pressure.
Everything in this review will come from me. I am even typing it, but Mom, Alyssa Hunt, will be putting in the links and the fancy stuff. I am the brains and she's the back up.
The Deadly 7 is by Garth Jennings (he has a really fun website, by the way) and is about a boy named Nelson. His sister is kidnapped while on a trip in Spain which is pretty scary. His parents leave him with his Uncle Pogo (he has a wooden leg), who lives in London while they search for her. While there, Nelson helps his Uncle and ends up being stabbed in the back when he falls on to a strange machine below St. Paul's Cathedral! The machine removed seven entities (mom said that was a good word), from Nelson. All of them are what are from the seven deadly sins we have inside us! They appear to Nelson as weird looking monsters, but they behave like minions. Each creature has a bad or embarrassing habit and they don't always get along, but they are all there to help Nelson find his sister. They have strange powers that link themselves to Nelson and know when he needs help. So they go off on a mission to bring his big sister back home.
There's mystery, magic and a little bit of evil but kids that are my age will enjoy this book. The best thing about The Deadly 7 is that it takes all those pieces of Nelson to find out about himself. He learns that he can be brave, funny, annoying and very weird. Mostly he was brave. Not many kids can go to Brazil by themself.
I think many kids will like this book. Thank you for reading my blog and I hope you have a very good day!
