Marley is a geeky 7th grader who loves Star Trek. His main buds are Ramen (nicknamed for the lunch he always eats) who loves Star Wars and Max a Batman fanatic. They are in the AV club at school and lunch together under the 'tragic tree' away from the popular kids and the bullies who torment Marley.

Ramen and Marley argue endlessly about Star Wars vs Star Trek as they deal with the ups and downs of middle-school which include jocks, lack of funds, lack of friends, crushes, humiliations, and life lessons.

I was not prepared to like this book as much as I did having not read it in time for my book group discussion. I'd recommend it to 6th grade and up, and will now head out to read her other books with these characters which each stand alone.
