Praise for The Kidney Hypothetical :

 * "Yee captures the intensity of popularity measured in yearbook pages and the strength of genuine teen melodrama; Smart, funny-but-ruthless teens and self-absorbed, grieving adults prove to be enormously appealing." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"With whipsmart writing, a fast-paced plot, plenty of humour, and just enough mystery to keep readers on edge, this is an emotional journey about breaking free of family, friends, and duty to discover what makes you happy." -- Booklist

"As Higgs' life unravels, every single one of his accepted beliefs has to be re-examined. And the miracle of this novel--the wonderful, hilarious miracle of this novel--is that Higgs actually does this. In a culture that insists that nothing matters more than appearance, Higgs actually looks at himself deeply and (and here is the killer in this novel) honestly." -- Gary Schmidt, author of The Wednesday Wars and Okay For Now

You read along, smiling and chortling all the way, and then WHAM! she hits you in the heart. Watch out Higgs Boson, you're a Lisa Yee character. You've got seven days - seven days to shed who you think you should be, and become the person you're meant to be." -- Amy Timberlake, author of One Came Home

"Lisa Yee has written the best worst week of school ever. Just when you think Higgs Boson Bing's life can't get any worse, it does, in increasingly funny and poignant ways." -- Emily Ecton, author of Project Jackalope

"Lisa Yee is one of those people everybody loves. At any moment, she can say something witty, completely off-the-wall wacky, or shockingly deep. Reading The Kidney Hypothetical was exactly like hanging out with Lisa -- wildly entertaining, emotionally affecting, and over far too soon." -- Jordan Sonnenblink, author of Drums, Girls & Dangerous Pie

"Lisa asks what it means to live an authentic life, and she does so brilliantly with humour, pathos, and truth." -- Kerry Madden, author of the Maggie Valley Trilogy

Praise for Millicent Min,Girl Genius :

"An utterly charming debut, as well as being the kind of tour de force that leaves one breathless." -- Boston Globe

* "[A] heartfelt story full of wit." -- Publishers Weekly, starred review

Praise for Absolutley Maybe :

"Moving from middle grade into YA fiction, Yee brings both a flair for comic timing and a sense of pathos.... The characters are complex and their friendships layered -- they sweep readers up in their path." -- Publishers Weekly

"Maybe's search takes her to unexpected places, and readers will absolutely enjoy the ride." -- Horn Book
