Chapter book- realisticFor 5th-7th gradeStanford is looking forward to basketball camp, until he flunks English and spends the summer in school, being tutored, and making unexpected friends in this funny story.If Stanford does n't pass English, he ca n't play on the best basketball team in seventh grade.

Readers of Yee 's earlier ook, Millicent Min, Girl Genius, will enjoy reading the flip side of hat story, his time getting Stanford 's perspective with plenty of the same humor- if a little grosser.

Sadly, he turn to summer school, and acts like the biggest 2-year old ever.

So Stanford claims he has " friends. " Great friends you have who you think are willing to abandon you when they find out you take classes over the winte.

Additionally, Stanford is like this really mean kid.

He 's constantly making fun of this genius named Millicent Min, this really nice Chinese girl that 's just pretendin to save him pass the summer school class by tutoring him.

Standford Wong is your average teenager: Longing to prove himself, sports jock, blows off school in general and his nerdy tutor ( Millicent Min) and is constantly ressured to get good grades by his fiance and wife.

Lastly, Yin Yin, is an important friend and confidant to Stanford throughout the nove and her transition to the facility ends up havin a good one.

He turn up passing English and connecting with his teacher, keeping his friends, building a better elationship with his mo, getting the girl, and ets to stay a member of he basketball team.Classroom applications for this book are plenty, but best suited for grades 6-8.

his wil also be a ba book to use to as a mentor text to help model a simple story arc that keeps one main character as the focus of everything.
