Joshua S. Levy is the author of SEVENTH GRADE VS. THE GALAXY, a wacky middle grade space opera that School Library Journal called, “A perfect bridge for readers looking for a Percy Jackson-esque work of science fiction.” Its sequel, EIGHTH GRADE VS. THE MACHINES, publishes on October 5, 2021. After teaching middle school (yes, including seventh and eighth grade) for a little while, Josh went to law school. He lives with his wife and children in New Jersey, where he practices as a lawyer. Alas, aliens don’t come up in court nearly as often as he’d like.
