Ge her life a comedy camp for kids taught by one of her favorite YouTube stars The only problem is that the instructor and all the students think she's a girl named Kay Nakamura and Yumi doesn't correct themAs this case of mistaken identity unravels Yumi must decide to stand up and reveal the truth or risk losing her dreams and disappointing everyone she cares abou. 45 StarsYumi Chung has earned herself a big fan in me because oh boy did I love this bookI love how this story shows us that comedy while being a form of entertainment is really a space of vulnerability where comics share so much of their lives and use storytelling as a way of healing and making sense of their experiences Yumi loves comedy so much but struggles because she lacks confidence and self belief which is whatmakes her so determined to learnAs the story progresses we see that Yumi isn't just dealing a standard bout of shyness but that she's being held back by her fear of failing and her fear of being herself I also appreciate how this story breaks down stereotypes concerning tiger parents and strict Asians by showing us that yes Yumi's parents are hard on her but it's because they don't want her to become a labourer like them and they don't want her to feel uncertain about her future Yumi is not trying to defy her parents in fact she deeply respects them and that's a level of nuance that I really appreciateAnother layer this story gives us is how entitlement and privilege are not something afforded to many POC and especially the children of immigrants Everyone in Yumi's life is advising her to just be honest and tell your parents what you really want and while it all comes from a good place all she can think about is that her parents would never sign her up for comedy camps or send her to a performing arts school because those things are luxuries Getting a first chance at living your dream much less a second one is a privilege in and of itself And getting what you want exactly how you want is simply not the reality for many POCTo me this story says that maybe the endgame isn't getting what you want but learning how to love each other better and how love yourself better Maybe the endgame is learning to take what you're given and look for every chance you have to use it in the best way you know how And yes the story celebrates learning to be yourself in the funniest and sweetest way possibleSo in short I love Yumi Chung and I love this book and I wouldn't say no to reading adventures about this wonderful comedic hero

Stand Up Yumi ChungOne lie snowballs into a full blown double life in this irresistible story about an aspiring stand up comedianOn the outside Yumi Chung suffers from #shygirlproblems a perm gone wrong and kids calling her Yu MEAT because she smells like her family's Korean barbecue restaurant On the inside Yumi is ready for her Netflix stand up special Her notebook is filled with m. This was such a fun heart warming Middle Grade book Even though Yumi Chung is super shy she dreams of being a stand up comedian When she stumbles into a comedy summer camp and gets mistaken for a camper she doesn’t correct anyone Now she’s secretly attending summer camp growing her confidence and hopefully learning how to stand up for what she wants I loved this book so much Yumi was a great character Her struggles with her parents not really listening to what she wants to do were very relatable I appreciated how a lot of this book is an immigrant story about her parents moving to the US from Korea and how that impacted their family and how they raised their children Also Yumi learning to express herself through comedy was fun to see Overall I think this is a funny and sweet Middle Grade book And it was fun to see the BTS references in it
