Lisa Yee returns to her core strength in older middle-grade fiction and the characters that made her famous in this "Diary of a Wimpy Trekkie."

Entering 7th grade is no big deal for Marley Sandelski: Same old boring classes, same old boring life. The only thing he has to look forward to is the upcoming Star Trek convention. But when he inadvertently draws the attention of Digger Ronster, the biggest bully in school, his life has officially moved from boring to far too dramatic . . . from invisible to center stage.

    This preteen drama set in Anywhere, USA is a classic story of cliques and social hierarchy, nerds, geeks, dweebs, jocks, cheerleaders, brains, and kids from every "planet" in between. Marley happens to be stuck in the middle of the plantary galactic forces as he plods through the perils of Middle School at WARP SPEED. This Trekky teen isn't the coolest kid in school by any means. In his search for significance, he learns some tough lessons about what really matters in life and what doesn't. Popularity maybe overrated, and being invisible might not be so bad after all. Read Warp Speed to step into a world of confusion, weird, awkward, and growth. Growth. What an awkward word that is. Maybe you should pass on this book...or maybe not? Is that you I sense a growing desire to find out more about Marley and his story.
