Meet Author Lisa Yee

Warp Speed the latest in middle school adventures

By Damien Murphy | April 6 , 2011

Author Lisa Yee takes readers back to Rancho Rosetta Middle School in her new release Warp Speed. The school that gave you Millicent Min, Stanford Wong, and Emily Ebers, now presents Marley Sandelski, a self-described Star Trek geek and unpopular middle school student who feels invisible to everyone but the bullies.

Kid Reporter Damien Murphy recently visited Ms. Yee in her home in South Pasadena, California, to get the scoop on Warp Speed, her future publishing plans, AND her famous traveling Peep!
