Plot Summary: Yumi Chung WANTS to be a comedian just like her idol Jasmine Jasper. But Yumi can't seem to gain enough confidence to have a smooth and engaging delivery of her original material. When, by shear luck, her idol is offering a summer improv camp at a new local theater, Yumi gets wrapped up in a lie pretending she is someone else. Someone else who paid for the camp. Should she keep going when it's the first time she's been successful at making others laugh? Or is hiding the truth worth it if it means she can continue to do what she loves and be successful? side plots: saving Yumi's parents restaurant, getting the scholarship

Setting: Los Angeles

Yumi chung, a girl who suffers from shyness. Prepares for her Netflix stand-up special. ( )

this is great. the writing is good but even more so the characters and story shine. this is an excellent story about finding yourself, understanding your family and heritage, making mistakes, and redefining failure as not trying. i'm not entirely sure if yumi reads as an almost-seventh grader or if she seems a bit older than that most of the time, but either way, this is a really great middle grade book with a really good message woven in.

Stand Up Yumi Chung is a serious and hilarous book about family, finding one's path, and growing up. The book follows Yumi as she seeks to find her way as a comedian knowing her Korean American parents will disapprove of this path. Her parents encourage her to follow an academic path but Yumi wants to go into performing. Her parents work hard running a failing restaurant, her older sister has her own crisis, and Yumi finds herself in a bit of a pickle over a story she made up. Culture and identity are woven into the story seamlessly. Loved every bit of it. ( )

Friends, I dare you to read this book and not immediately fall in love with Yumi Chung. Really, I do. As an adult who avidly reads Middle Grade books, it’s a lot of fun for me to find little pieces of my younger self in these stories. When I met Yumi, I laughed at loud how similar the two of us were. Shy on the outside, awkward as can be because of that, and yet so eager to step and be brave and move forward. She made me smile, and this book just flew by.

What really made this whole story was the deep familial love that ran throughout it. Even if Yumi’s parents didn’t understand her love for comedy, even if Yumi made more than a few mistakes, that love was always there. It was so refreshing to see a real family depicted on the page. One who was subject to misunderstandings and arguments. One who would drop everything to take care of one another. It’s hard to explain fully without spoiling anything, but there were a few scenes in this that legitimately made me tear up. The things that parents sacrifice for their children, even if it’s not always understood by those children at the time, are beautiful.

Oh and watching Yumi grow was just the icing on the cake. As she learned how to break out of her shell, and own up to her mistakes, I couldn’t help but cheer her on. Jessica Kim’s emphasis on how running from our mistakes isn’t always possible, or the right answer, was beautifully done here. Again, I’m reigning myself in so I don’t spoil anything. The ending though! Ah, the ending. I adored it!

There’s a reason why Middle Grade books are my happy place, and Jessica Kim just sealed that for me with this wonderful book. Stand Up, Yumi Chung! is one of the sweetest, funniest and most genuine books that I’ve had the pleasure of reading this year. Stories about personal growth, and coming out of your shell, have always been my favorite. What I loved about this book though was that it wasn’t just Yumi that had some growing to do, it was also her family. This lead to some giggles, a few teary sighs, and a lot of smiles. ( )
