Millicent Min is up-front about herself: she’s anal retentive, a genius and doesn’t have many friends. There’s not too many that share her love of doing college-level math in a tree house.
Although Millicent may be vastly different than most of us, Lisa Yee has created a likable character who is not only blind to her own faults, but holds on dearly to them when others point them out. Maybe she’s not that different from us after all–I feel a kinship.
