Genius Summer earns the Literary Classics Seal of Approval
Millie Olson is top in her class, but her social life has been nearly non-existent as a result of her academic dedication. When she graduates as valedictorian of her high school at just 16 years of age everyone expects her to go to a top college. Torn by indecision and feeling pulled in different directions, she must choose between the lure of scholarships, the expectations of her parents and her desire to volunteer at the history museum.
Following graduation Millie and her younger siblings go away to spend the summer with their grandmother in Oklahoma. When she discovers a mysterious diary in her grandmother's attic everything begins to change for Millie.
