Seventh grader Chris Masters is having a problem with two bullis in his school. they steal his lunch money and threaten him. His next biggest problem is a video game called "The Seventh Crystal". It came in the mail with almost no instructions. Chris is a video game wizard and he's trying to figure out this new game. Chris and his friend Jimmy are on their way to the store and are chased by Cliff and Shawn, the two bullies. the chase leads the boys into the ancient Valley of Zon. Chris' challenge is to save the Princess Darvina from the evil Mogg. If he can then the boys can return home. Does Chris save Darvina? what happenes to Mogg? Read the book and find out! I think the book's message is that even if someone tries to make you feel like a wimp, you really aren't. We are all better at some things than we are at other things. A person should not be mean to other people because we all have feelings and things that we do well. I like the book because it was exciting. the adventure never stopped and I couldn't put the book down. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes an exciting story.
