Millicent Min, Girl Genius (Lisa Yee)
CHILDREN’S SECTION TOUR : BOOK 30
Millicent is trying to hide the fact that she’s a genius and already in high school from her new friend, but it’s hard when her parents are making her tutor Stanford Wong. Millicent’s character was funny at times but overall I didn’t find the story very engaging.
