Stanford Wong Flunks Big-Time by Lisa Yee

Stanford Wong Flunks Big-TimeSo much for the overachieving model minority myth: Meet Stanford Wong, basketball star and the only 7th-grader on the middle-school A-Team – but only if he can get past 6th-grade English. After flunking, he’s consigned not only to summer school, but being tutored by the local genius dweeb, Millicent Min (check out the spunky Millicent Min, Girl Genius). He’s too embarrassed to tell the other guys. And he certainly can’t let the fabulous new girl in town think he’s stupid!
