Overview

Adam has a good life in Buffalo: great parents, a cute girlfriend, adequate grades. He's not the best at anything, but he's not the worst either. He secretly lusts after Vanessa, the hottest girl in school, and when his dead grandfather's will stipulates that he go on a mission to France, Adam figures he might just have a chance to impress Vanessa and change his life from good to great. When he gets to France, he discovers he has not one but three near-impossible tasks before him. He also discovers a dark and shameful episode from his grandfather's past, something Adam is supposed to make amends for. But how can he do that when he barely speaks the language and his tasks become more and more dangerous? Despite the odds, Adam finds a way to fulfill his grandfather's wishes and, in the process, become worthy of bearing his name.

Like his six cousins, Adam is sent on adventure of sorts by his now-deceased grandfather. Eager to get to France, he finds mystery after mystery as he must look for items related to a cave, a painting, and French novelist Antoine de St Exupery. Along the way, Adam's eyes are opened to a secret from his grandfather's past that change his view of the man. The action and adventure of Orca's Seven: The Series will appeal to upper elementary and middle school boys.
