Millicent Min, Girl Genius

by

Millicent Min, Girl Genius Cover

 

Staff Pick

For most kids, summer vacation is a piece of cake compared to being in school. But for 11-year-old Millicent Min, who just completed her junior year of high school, this summer presents a bit of a challenge. Book smarts might earn Millicent straight A's at school, but how will she score on the volleyball court, as a tutor to her archenemy, and as a friend to other kids her age? I highly recommend this book.

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Who would have thought being smart could be so hard (and funny)?

Millicent Min is having a bad summer. Her fellow high school students hate her for setting the curve. Her fellow 11-year-olds hate her for going to high school. And her mother has arranged for her to tutor Stanford Wong, the poster boy for Chinese geekdom. But then Millie meets Emily. Emily doesn't know Millicent's IQ score. She actually thinks Millie is cool. And if Millie can hide her awards, ignore her grandmother's advice, swear her parents to silence, blackmail Stanford, and keep all her lies straight, she just might make her first friend.

What's it gong to take? Sheer genius.

Review:

"An 11-year-old breezes through high school and college classes, but when it comes to making friends her own age, she's at a loss. 'Readers don't have to share the heroine's IQ to empathize with the genius narrator of this energetic first novel,' wrote PW in a starred review. Ages 9-12. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information, Inc.)
