Summary: Marley Sandelski has always felt invisible at school when he is not facing bullies, but a series of unexpected events gives him a taste of popularity and insights into some classmates, well-liked or greatly-feared.            

The message in Warp Speed is how an unpopular boy becomes popular by standing up to a bully. The author did a great job writing about him standing up to a bully. It seemed unbelievable, like it couldn’t happen in real life. In the beginning of the story it’s confusing but at the end it isn’t. It moves about a chapter a day and at the end of each chapter there’s a diary. There is one unanswered question at the end of the book.  The main character, Marley, is believable because he shows his feelings. His mom is blind and they are an average family. Marley is in middle school.  The author did a good job making it suspenseful. I was eager to read more. Some parts in the book were funny, others were serious.-Elliot

I thought that this book was not distinguished, but it wasn’t not distinguished either. I think that a couple of other people should read this book because I wasn’t sure about it. Marley (the main character) is a geek at school, rises to popularity, then declines the offer. You’ll have to read it to find out details (and help me decide whether it was distinguished or not).-Olivia
