Millicent Min, Girl Genius

by Lisa Yee

Grade: Good

The Cadel books are way better, but this was still interesting. I actually liked the characters much more than I thought I would--Stanford, Emily, and Maddie. And even the progressive Alice was interesting. However, the tone of the book was much younger than Cadel, which I think is why I didn't like it quite so much. This was written in first person, from an 11-year-old's point of view. True, she was a genius 11-year-old, but still...

I think I will always like books about child geniuses, so long as they are fairly well written.
