This book is about an eleven year old girl that is about to enter 11th grade.
Millicent is having a terrible summer. Her grandmother is moving away, she doesnt have any friends, she has to tutor her enemy, and her mother has signed her up for volleyball. In volleyball she meets Emily and becomes friends with her. The only problem is that Emily doesnt know that Millicent is a genius. Millicent will have to find a way to tutor her enemy, learn how to play volleyball, hide her awards, and keep all of her lies straight. Will Millicent make it through the summer? Read this book to find out!
I would recommend this book to girls ages 9-12. If I had to rate this book, I would rate it a five out of five, because I really enjoyed reading it.

Eleven-year-old Millicent Min is a certified genius, but she's not very good at making friends. Hoping to improve Millicent's social life, her mom signs her up for a volleyball league. Millicent would rather not play volleyball, but she does manage to make friends with a new girl in town named Emily. Sure that Emily will dislike her if she discovers that she's a genius, Millicent takes pains to hide that fact. Can the girls' friendship survive such a secret?
This is such a good book I think EVERYONE will like it!

This book is so awesome! Lisa Yee is a new author and she is one of the best. She's so funny and it seems like she doesn't even try.
This book is about 11 year old Millicent Min, a Chinese girl who happens to be a certified genius. Its the summer before her senior year in high school. She's taking a poetry class at the college and she's trying to make new friends. Her parents and grandmother, Maddie, want her to take new chances and branch out more to have a more "normal" childhood with kids her own age. So her mom signs her up for the girls volleyball team and to tutor the "dumb" Stanford Wong, her enemy. Millie is so not happy about this!
But things change when she becomes friends with Emily, a girl on her volleyball team. Emily is a regular girl who likes clothes, boys, junk food, etc. But Millie doesn't want to lose this friendship, so she keeps her intelligence a big secret. Things seem to go very well. They are best friends, that is, until the truth is unexpectedly discovered by Emily. Emily feels very angry and decieved and stops speaking to Emily and Stanford. What is Millie to do? She wants this friendship so badly, but she needs to learn how to apologize for her lie.
With the help of her family and Maddie, Emily learns that people can accept you for who you really are and that by looking into various activites in life you can find your true self and happiness. This book is so good, I loved it! I recommend it greatly!
