Rating: ★★★★½

millicent is a gnius and takes college classes even though she’s only a kid. she doesnt have any friends because she’s so snobby about being smart. but one day she meets emily who doesnt know anything about millicent’s genius because she’s new in town. so millie decides to pretend she’s not a genius so that emily will like her.

also, millie has to tutor stanford wong over the summer. he’s a boy at her school and their grandparents are friends. millie and stanford DO NOT like each other. they just do the tutoring because they have to.

but then stanford meets emily and they like-like each other and millie is worried that stanford will tell emily the truth about millie’s genius. i was so nervous to find out what was going to happen! lol! even though millie can be annoying i wanted her and emily to stay friends. read the book to find out what happens!

    Did you know there’s a book from Stanford’s point of view too? And a book from Emily’s point of view? They’re so good! I like them better than Millie’s to be honest. And Emily’s name is kind of like my name, which is really cool!

      I liked the book, but it seemed a ltltie too unrealistic for me. I mean, a eleven year old 12th grader?? Who doesn’t have ANY friends??? Not likely. It still was a good book, though.

    My friend had the one from Emily’s point of view. I read it and LOVED it, but I have no idea where to get the other books.

    I agree what you said about Millie being kind of annoying, but I read Emily’s view first, so it was nice to see what she was thinking. I loved how the author made it really sound like she was speaking, when she used all of these cluttered humongous words.

    I thought this book was great. I was quickly feeling the mothers concern, Millecents stress, and Emily’s positive excitement.
