- Millicent Min is only eleven, but her resume is impressive. One of her goals is to graduate high school next year as valedictorian. But it isn't easy being a girl genius. Kids her own age think she's a freak, and the other kids in eleventh grade hate her for working too hard and making them look bad. Worse yet, this summer her mother is making her tutor geeky jock Stanford Wong and play on a girls volleyball team. Millie's grandmother Maddie is usually on her side, but even she thinks volleyball is a good idea. The only bright spot in Millicent's summer is her college level poetry class. When Millicent meets Emily at volleyball, for the first time she has a friend her own age who doesn't know she's a genius. Millicent hopes Emily won't find out the truth about her from Stanford or her family.
