Daily Kindle Bargain - King of the Marshmallows by Lydia Ondrusek

King of the Marshmallows by Lydia Ondrusek is available on Kindle for just 99 cents.


Erin has never been secretive, but she's starting to wonder; is it still keeping a secret if you just don’t tell anybody? What if nobody asks?

Could what Margret and her friends (or henchmen) are doing be Erin's secret? Erin is being bullied at school. She hasn’t reported the abuse to anyone in charge, not her teachers, or her parents–she hasn’t even talked to her twin brother Tim about it. Erin believes her reasons for not discussing what’s going on are good. Or she did. She’s not so sure anymore.

The bullying has gone from insults to physical attacks that are getting dangerous. They’re bad enough that now Erin is scared to go to school. It’s stopped feeling like a safe place to be. Can what she’s learning in taekwondo help?

From the Reviewers:

"BLOCK! is the second in the King of the Marshmallows series by Lydia Ondrusek. BLOCK! tells the tale of twins, Tim who has Asperger's and his sister Erin, who acts as his buffer. Unfortunately, Erin has problems of her own, in the form of a Mean Girl who makes snide comments. I'd recommend BLOCK! for any middle grade child, and definitely for the parents of kids this age."
--Joanne L. Huspek, 5-star review on Amazon

"King of The Marshmallows is an uplifting story...well written and compelling."
--Reading Vacation
