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.

SELECT REVIEWS:

  • “Yee’s combination of humor and sympathy works a charm here, giving Marley a life of his own and a chance at success in this solid addition to her prismatic look at middle school.” -- Kirkus Reviews

    “Fans of Yee’s Millie Trilly will be thrilled with this spin-off…. Yee admirably keeps the topic of bullying a realistically complicated one…. Like the earlier books, this one truly stands alone, but reading them all and finding the many connections is too good a treat to pass up.” -- Horn Book

    “Once again, the author addresses a serious issue with a light touch. An entertaining read and a solid example of bibliotherapy.” -- School Library Journal
