Overview

Stanford Wong Flunks Big-Time by Lisa Yee


Stanford Wong is in big trouble--or as he would spell it, "trubble"--in this laugh-out-loud companion to the award-winning MILLICENT MIN, GIRL GENIUS and this season's HC, EMILY EBERS.

Stanford Wong is having a bad summer. If he flunks his summer-school English class, he won't pass sixth grade. If that happens, he won't start on the A-team. If *that* happens, his friends will abandon him and Emily Ebers won't like him anymore. And if THAT happens, his life will be over. Soon his parents are fighting, his grandmother Yin-Yin hates her new nursing home, he's being "tutored" by the world's biggest nerdball Millicent Min--and he's not sure his ballpoint "Emily" tattoo is ever going to wash off.

I absolutely LOVED this book! I've read it and reread it over and over. It's so cool how Lisa Yee wrote 3 books about the same summer and the same events--but they're all equally interesting and great reads! Stanford's story was my favorite because all of Stanford's lies to his family, friends, and Emily pull you into the story and don't let you go until the book is done. The dialogue between Stanford and his friends is believable and funny, and my favorite parts were when Millicent was trying to tutor Stanford and he was too busy focusing on Emily--the way Stanford thinks and talks was hilarious! I love how Lisa Yee made a character so realistic and funny that you wish she'd write a sequel about him! Again, this was an awesome book, and you really don't want to miss it!

It's the last day of sixth grade, and Stanford Wong can't wait to get out of school and go to Alan Scott's Basketball Camp, the best camp any basketball player could dream of. This is going to be the summer of his life...

...well, that is until he receives his grade for English class: a big fat F.

An F means that basketball camp is over. Stanford needs to go to summer school instead. Not only that, Stanford will be tutored by the annoying genius Millicent Min.

What else can go wrong?

Lots more! Stanford's parents are not getting along, and his grandma recently moved into a nursing home where she's miserable. On top of all that, Stanford obviously cannot let his friends and the girl he likes, Emily Ebers, know that he flunked big time! This is certainly not going to be the best summer of his life.

Or is it?

Lisa Yee is not only a funny lady, but she has done something quite original: she's written three novels (that's not the original part), and each one of them tells the story from the point of view of a character that eventually shows up in her other books: MILLICENT MIN, GIRL GENIUS; SO TOTALLY EMILY EBERS; and STANFORD WONG FLUNKS BIG-TIME.

Of the three titles, I have only read this one, but I'm sure that readers of the other two books will enjoy reading this novel to find out what Stanford thinks about girls, parents, friends, and basketball. And they'll also find out Stanford's biggest secret: when he gets nervous HE KNITS!

The back of the book contains a section with an interview with the author, a recipe for Stanford's grandma's Won Tons, and much more.

Hm. Now, I suppose that since it's the same summer, different point of view written second, it doesn't matter what order I read them in, does it? This book is funny, heartwarming, all that stuff. I considered reading the other ones for years, and now I know they wll.

This is the best book I've read in a long time I'm only eleven and I'm in the Sixth Grade just like Stanford. I alomst done with the book. I can't put it down. I can't wait to read Totally Emily Ebers and Millicent Min Girl Genuis. Lisa Yee you are a great author, and I'm to get all of my friends to read because we all like books like this one. I hope you readers out there enjoy the book as much as I did!!!!

This is a great book if you loved Millicent Min, Girl Genius! Almost as good as So Totally Emily Embers, which is Lisa Yee's newest book about Millicent's friend Emily. All three rock!!!The reading level is a little low for good readers but it is a fun book to read. I found it very easy but enjoyable.

My 9 yr old loved this book. He was laughing and sometimes snickering throughout the entire book. He read it for sheer enjoyment and is waiting with bated breath for Lisa Yee's next book. I highly recommend it.

I read Lisa Yee's novel, MILLICENT MIN, GIRL GENIUS, and was curious about this one. I'm happy to report that it's just as funny and moving as the first. Stanford Wong is Millicent's enemy and this story is from his point of view, and takes place the same summer as her book. Stanford is a boy obsessed with basketball, and who hates school. He has to be tutored by a child genius and is horrified. Especially when he falls for her best friend. So he lies about tutoring and other things. His homelife is pretty rotten, too. Still, the book is full of humor and wit and I highly recommend it!
