Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 5–7—It's Emily Ebers's turn to tell about the summer she meets Millicent Min and Stanford Wong, each of whom has charmed readers in earlier books. Emily, who is effervescent and enthusiastic, has her own story to tell. She's just moved to Rancho Rosetta, CA, from New Jersey after her parents' divorce. She directs a lot of anger and unhappiness against her mom, who is also reeling from the change. She writes down her thoughts and feelings in a journal for her dad, who is on the road with a revival tour of his old rock band and has sent the 12-year-old a credit card for her birthday. Emily befriends Millicent at a girls' summer volleyball league where they're the worst players. The rapport between the girls is delightful, as Millie shares her idiosyncratic take on her hometown. Emily meets Stanford and assumes that he is tutoring Millie. When she finds out that her new friends have misled her about the situation, her disappointment is palpable. As in Millicent Min, Girl Genius (2003) and Stanford Wong Flunks Big-Time (2005, both Scholastic), family is vitally important. In the end, Emily patches things up with her mom and realizes that some changes can be good, even though they may not work out as expected. It's a good message for preteens, as is Emily's insistence on treating others with kindness. Although this book stands on its own, kids will get more pleasure if they read the other two first. With a baby sister on the way for Millicent Min, dare we hope for another sequel?—Tina Zubak, Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, PA

From Booklist

There aren't many authors who can bring energy to the same basic story three times running, but Yee manages to do it in this companion to Millicent Min, Girl Genius (2003)and Stanford Wong Flunks Big-Time (2005). Now, the ruse unfolds from the viewpoint of Millicent's new friend (and Stanford's crush) Emily, a blithe spirit prone to blind spots--whether in her dealings with Millie (whose weirdly tidy bedroom prompts praise for having "totally nailed that stark look") or in her relationship with her father, whom she adores despite his inattentiveness following her parents' divorce. The format proves less successful than Emily's faithfully evoked voice; the daily entries (a continuing letter to her incommunicado dad) record details and dialogue too precisely to ring true. But fans of the first two books will enjoy seeing how this telling expands its predecessors' take on the same events, and most readers will find something to appreciate in Emily's particular story, which tempers painful truths about divorce's repercussions with middle-grade romance and humor.

As a mother who screens everything her 11-year-old daughter reads, I tend to roll my eyes when yet another book about tween angst catches her eye at the Book Fair and she wants me to get it for our home library. So when I was persuaded to pay for "Millicent Min, Girl Genius" by Lisa Yee, that being the author's debut novel, I wasn't expecting much - but I was pleasantly surprised by how un-typical this (as it turned out to be) series is. It is SO CLEVER!

"So Totally Emily Ebers" is the third book in this trilogy, which chronicles the same story from three different viewpoints: Millicent's, Stanford's - and now Emily's. While, yes, there are some parts of "So Totally Emily Ebers" where Emily's concerns are a little more precocious than I would want my daughter to have, it doesn't trouble me the same way that the "Winnie Years" series by Lauren Myracle does. Most importantly, it is very clear how a-typical Millicent, Stanford and Emily are from the average kid right from the start - and while they may suffer the same angst facing kids growing up in American middle schools, the message said daughter gets from this series is that there are many different types of people in the world, and they all see the same things differently - and said daughter has her own path to follow. While said daughter may relate to some of the issues faced by Emily (and Millicent and Stanford), I did not sense that the author is attempting to persuade anyone of the correct way to react to those issues. Below is how said daughter found "So Totally Emily Ebers", in her own words:

"The book 'So Totally Emily Ebers' is a great book to read during the summer. When Emily's mom and dad get a divorce, Emily is sure her life is ending.

Rumor has it, this series of books was not a planned one. Coulda fooled me! Each book seems to fit perfectly into the ones before it, making the whole experience richer and more interesting.

This book easily upholds the promise of the previous books.

Format: Hardcover
Lisa Yee's SO TOTALLY EMILY EBERS is presented in the form of Emily's letters to her father and chart a move to California and a series of ideas and impressions on life, friendship, romance and divorce. It's a winning story of coming of age and coping with a new family and social life and the format and chatty style will involve young adults in a fine leisure choice.

SO TOTALLY EMILY EBERS follows the adventures of eleven-year-old Emily, who has to move from Allendale, New Jersey to Rancho Rosetta, California. Since her parents are divorced, she has to move across the country with her mom, while her dad stays behind in New Jersey.

When she thinks nothing good can come out of the volleyball classes her mom signs her up for, something does. She meets Millicent Min. Millie, as she calls her, also was forced to take the lessons. Emily and Millie never run out of things to say, but when Millie lies to Emily, she starts hanging around with the popular girls. They tell her to go on a diet and give her a makeover, but that isn't the girl her mother (or her friends) knows.

Emily's mom, Alice, just wants to be a part of her daughter's life, but Emily wants to be alone, especially when Alice starts dating the town police officer. She hates her for making her leave her dad. She gets angry when she calls her dad's house and some lady answers. At first, she thinks she must have the wrong number, but suddenly she hears her dad's voice in the background. She quickly hangs up, but is sad that her parents have moved on from each other.

How will she start a new school this fall without her old friends, who called to say they were having a great time without her? Why did Millie have to lie to her? Why can't her parents just get back together? Will Emily's life ever settle down and get back to normal?

SO TOTALLY EMILY EBERS is another great read in Lisa Yee's series, following the release of Millicent Min, Girl Genius and Stanford Wong Flunks Big-time (Apple Signature Edition).
