bu konu sizi ilgilendirirse bu kitabı gerçekten yıkamazsınız. Boer Savaşı'ndan önce okuyun. Dünyanın "daha cahil" halkları arasındaki İngiliz baskı tarihine ışık tutuyor. Zulu ülkesi metali olduğunu kanıtlıyor ve komuta, taktik veya cesaret eksikliği nedeniyle yenilmedi.
"I have been accused of being anal retentive, an over-achiever, and a compulsive perfectionist, like those are bad things." Millicent Min is a genius. It's not that she's just really smart, but certifiably a genius--she's going to be a senior in high school and has started taking classes at the local college. She's 11. She's also lonely--she's in a lot of extra-curriculars at school, but she doesn't have friends. Even in her college class, the other students don't see her as an equal and resent her presence. Other kids her age don't know how to relate to her. Millicent's mother signed her up for volleyball this summer to try and give her daughter a "normal" childhood. At volleyball, she meets Emily. Emily seems to like her, so Millicent doesn't tell her how smart she is. She wants Emily to see her as a normal kid. As long as she can keep they lies straight, she'll be OK, right? Lisa Yee has a great character in Millie, who, socially, is a little behind her peers even she's light years ahead of them academically. She's hilarious as she tries to navigate her new friendship with Emily, and friendships are complicated, no matter how smart you are. Yee has written several very believable characters and Millicent is extremely likable.
Took a bit to get into but I ended up impressed. There were a few surprises that I did not see coming at all, even though I felt that I should have.
