The Kidney Hypothetical by Lisa Yee. 265 p. Arthur A. Levine Books/ Scholastic Inc. March, 2015. 9780545230940.
Publisher Synopsis: Lisa Yee gives us her most fascinating flawed genius since Millicent Min.
First Line: It was supposed to be the best week of my life, but then everything went terribly wrong.
Page 56: For Sally Ride High School Helps Week, all the seniors were required to do community service. I created the Society for Animal Protection as a joke. Everyone loves animals. So what if SAP only had two members, me and Nick? We protected an animal.
I love Lisa Yee's books. She has a knack for making dead-on observations hilariously funny without being mean or snarky.
