So, I read this book that was good but... not great. It's called The Seventh Level by Jody Feldman.  
It's a book about  a seventh grader, Travis, who must solve seven puzzles in order to be accepted into a secret society at school. The cool part was that you got to solve the puzzles and brainteasers right along with Travis. The lame part was the cover of the book.

The Seventh Level lead me to another book, The Unknowns: A Math Mystery by Benedict Carey. 
Two seventh graders (Tom Jones and Lady Di) investigate the disappearance of their math tutor, Mrs. Clark. If you like maps, math, and math history you will love solving each clue along with Tom and Di.

So, to summarize...
If you like to do math, solve puzzles, have adventures, and save the day - these books are for you.

ps- you may need Sal Khan's help on a few of the math problems in The Unknowns ( Good Luck... and may the odds be ever in your favor (oh wait, that's a different book!)
