#tbt features Lisa Yee's 2003 debut novel, Millicent Min, Girl Genius. Poor Millicent. She may have skipped five grades and graduated high school with honors, but she is socially inept and has a few family problems brewing. She's stuck tutoring Stanford Wong, popular basketball jock and her mom has forced her to join volleyball. The only good thing about volleyball is Emily Ebers, her only friend besides her grandmother. Emily was forced into volleyball as well. This brisk and breezy story is often laugh-out-loud funny. Fans will definitely want to read the companion novels, Stanford Wong Flunks Big-Time and So Totally Emily Ebers.
