It's the eighth inning! The Missing Marlin is book #8 in our early chapter book mystery series, where each book is set in a different American ballpark!

Mike and Kate are in Miami visiting Kate's Uncle Oliver—and the Miami Marlins ballpark, of course! Uncle Oliver is in charge of keeping the new fish tanks at the ballpark fully stocked, but strange things keep happening. Kate swears she saw an endangered sea turtle in one of the tanks. Then some of Uncle Oliver's rare fish go missing, including his favorite, Marlin. Something fishy is going on in Miami!

The Missing Marlin includes several pages of "Dugout Notes," fun facts about Miami's recently built ballpark with its homerun statue, fish tanks, and swimming pool.

Cross Ron Roy's A to Z Mystery series with Matt Christopher's sports books and you get the Ballpark Mysteries: fun, puzzling whodunits aimed at the younger brothers and sisters of John Feinstein fans.

I need some help. I am officially being bullied. I don't want to sound depressed, because I'm not, I just need some way to get my anger out. It's not just one person. It's this big group of all the popular boys, who are all into being cool and swearing and whatnot. They just spread rumors about all the girls in my grade, and even some boys that really aren't popular but are really nice. One rumor they spread was that I make out with my BFF on my bus. I don't. That would be scary. I know you guys would suggest that I avoid them, but that is really hard to do in a school district as small as mine. They are all in my grade, most of them ride my bus, and some of them live in my subdivision. And on top of that, I just started Spring Break and my favorite brother has Influenza B. Which is extremely contagious. So he's pretty much on quarantine. And because he's sick, my ftiend from Chicago cannot come to my house, which makes me kind of mad, and my youngest brother, who is only 4 years old, is being a real jerk today, and my sister will not let me ride her hoverboard, and my dad is yelling at everyone, and my mom is upset because of that. There. I let my feelings out. Just please help me get through this week. And getting bullied. And any advice helps. I love you all!! ~Tmntlover234

Guys, it's Kai. I don't know if you guys can find this, but Chatstep is a website that I found that's good for chatting. The group name is NOOKGroup1, your username should be who you post as (ie Kai517, Jay164, Percy, etc) and the password- no spaces or capitals- is the title of this series.
