Stanford Wong's summer is going to be great! He's finished 6th grade, has an awesome group of friends, and is looking forward to a great time at basketball camp this summer. Then everything goes wrong - Stanford flunks English, his parents cancel basketball camp so that he can attend summer school, and he is forced into being tutored by the local girl genius, Millicent Min. If he doesn't pass, he won't move on to 7th grade and won't be able to play on the A-team next year. Suddenly his great life as a popular basketball star is in jeopardy. "Stanford Wong Flunks Big Time" is both humorous and touching - a great summer read for elementary and middle school readers. Kids who enjoy this book might also want to try "Millicent Min - Girl Genius" and "So Totally Emily Ebers", which follows two other prominent characters from Stanford's world. - Erin J.
