Staff Picks: Stand Up, Yumi Chung!

Reviewed by Cidne B., Information Assistant

Integrity

Yumi Chung would really like to be doing stand up comedy like her Youtube hero, Jasmine Jaspar. But being the youngest daughter of Korean immigrants, and incredibly shy, this seems like a silly dream. Then one day, after her summer SSAT prep classes, she discovers a comedy camp everything changes; a case of mistaken identity gives her the chance to be someone else and to get a taste of her dream! 

Stand Up, Yumi Chung! by Jessica Kim is a relatable, engaging middle grade novel that deals with the themes of familial responsibility, identity, integrity, friendship, and bravery. Appropriate for ages 9+
