I read Lisa Yee’s MILLICENT MIN, GIRL GENIUS years ago. I thought this would be a sequel, but it’s actually not. The story runs parallel to Millicent’s. In the first book Millicent tutors Stanford, who flunked English and has to retake it. I thought Stanford was obnoxious in MILLICENT but with this book, which is in his point of view, I became sympathetic towards him. He lies to his friends about having a summer job, so they won’t find out he’s taking English in summer school. His tutor, Millicent, is an annoying know-it-all. He’s a wiz in basketball and needs decent grades to stay on his team. He has a crush on Millicent’s friend, Emily, and strives to impress her. His parents not getting along and his grandmother being sent to a nursing home adds another emotional dimension to this novel. The book is adorable and I look forward to reading book three, SO TOTALLY EMILY EBERS. I’ve grown to love Millicent, Stanford, and Emily.
