    But when he flunks English -- flunks it big-time -- and learns he'll have to trade baskeball camp for summer school, Stanford freaks out. But Stanford has to keep going anyway, to make the grade, hold onto his friends, and be true to himself. And how he succeeds -- if he succeds -- is the subject of this funny, gross, bittersweet, and surprising novel from Lisa Yee.

Stanford Wong is having a bad summer. If he flunks his summer-school English class, he won't pass sixth grade. If that happens, he won't start on the A-team. If that happens, his friends will abandon him and Emily Ebers won't like him anymore. And if that happens, his life will be over. Then his parents are fighting, his grandmother Yin-Yin hates her new nursing home, he's being "tutored" by the world's biggest nerdball Millicent Min, and he's not sure his ballpoint "Emily" tattoo is ever going to wash off.
