Millicent Min, Girl Genius
- United States
More informationMillicent Min is having a bad summer. Her fellow high school students hate her for setting the curve. Her fellow eleven-year-olds hate her for going to high school. Her grandmother Maddie is moving away. And in an effort to give Millicent a more "normal" childhood, her mom has not only signed her up for volleyball, she's also arranged for Millie to tutor Stanford Wong-jock, jerk, and poster boy for Chinese geekdom.
But when Millicent meets Emily, things start to look up. 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, blackmail Stanford into silence, learn to serve a volleyball over the net, stop her parents from embarrassing her forever, and keep all her lies straight, she just might make her first friend.
What's it going to take?
