It's a really great book! I love Stanford's point of view of the story and his might just be my favorite of all 3! 😄🏀

Amazing book!!! It's cool to hear the story from a boy's point of view.

It's basically Standford's perspective of what happened in Millicent Min, Girl Genius.

Great Book!

Good book! I liked it better than So Totally Emily Ebers because it was interesting to read it from a boy's point-of-view. Awesome book!

Lisa Yee said that she wrote this book to show her daughter that boys aren't really smelly and stupid. In that aspect, she's halfway there. Stanford and his guy friends are still sweaty, smelly, and have fart-fests and the like, but by telling his side of the story (which, even as a girl, I thought was less annoying and more empathetic than Millicent's, whose book tells the same story from her point of view) she very convincingly shows him as just another kid with the same hopes, dreams, and worries as everyone else. Although he's a relatively normal kid, Yee's writing makes him interesting by portraying him with sensitivity and humor, making for a good read (middle school).

Better book than Millicent Min, Girl Genius, but still not as good as So totally Emily Ebers. by the way, his hair looks too short on the cover!
