The funny and vulnerable Millicent Min springs fully to life through reader Keiko Agena's warm, sensitive reading. In a summer of change, girl genius Millicent hides the fact that she's in high school in order to pass as a regular 11-year-old. She's convinced this is the only way she'll ever have a real friend. At her mother's insistence, she's on a volleyball team, but her ineptness is humiliating. Her best buddy, eccentric Grandma Maddy, is leaving for England. Worst of all, Millicent suspects her mother has a terminal disease. This audiobook is delightful in every way--characters, language, wisdom, and humor. Narrator Agena fully inhabits the heroine, making it a pleasure to spend time with both of them. E.S.
