Ungifted by Gordon Korman, 288 pages, read by Leslie, on 10/21/2013


Due to an administrative mix-up, troublemaker Donovan Curtis is sent to the Academy of Scholastic Distinction, a special program for gifted and talented students, after pulling a major prank at middle school.

Another engaging, fun book by Mr. Korman.  I haven’t seen too many books that deal with the gifted end of the student spectrum but this book kind of nails it.  Add an ungifted student to the mix and the kids realize there is more to school than just studying.  Very recommendable.
