King of the Marshmallows by Lydia Ondrusek is available on Kindle for just 99 cents.
Mark’s Asperger’s Syndrome makes things hard for him at school. Mark’s mom and dad think MORE school is the answer. They can’t be right--can they? When they enroll Mark in the new taekwondo school nearby, he finds that his class is filled with adults--and four kids from his school he’s never met before. So now he’s got to meet new people (ugh), learn MORE new skills (ack), and oh yeah…somewhere in there, he’s got to figure out how not to flunk English.
From the Reviewers:
"Having had my own child with Asperger-y type symptoms, I can strongly relate to Mark's (and his mom's) frustration with schoolwork. I can see this story being beneficial to any child who may have a, and even to those who don't."
--Joanne L. Huspek, 5-star review on Amazon
"King of The Marshmallows is an uplifting story about a middle grade boy named Mark who has Asperger's. It was great to see Mark transform through the story because of his tae-kwon-do. Well written and compelling."
