Title: Ungifted

Author: Gordon Korman

Published: November 2012

Genre: Fiction


After he damages the giant Atlas Statue outside his school, Hardcastle Middle School, Donovan Curtis gets busted by the superintendent, and he is sure that he is in for it. But after a goofy mix - up, instead of Donovan getting in trouble, he is actually transferred to the Academy For Scholastic Distinction, a school for the gifted.

With an IQ of 112, Donovan is knowledgeable of this mix - up, but he's not spilling. I fact, he's convinced that the Academy is the perfect place for him to hide out... just long enough before the "incident" blows over. But in order to remain normal, Donovan has to find a way to trick the geniuses of the Academy into thinking that his IQ is over the top... even though it's far from that.


What a funny, suspenseful and witty story about an average boy hiding out at a SCHOOL. I love how this story is detailed, and the characters adapt constantly. Some of them are so unbelievably hilarious, and the incidents Donovan's classmates get into are crazy. One even involves youtube... but I won't tell any more.

Overall, I loved this book and I hope you read it too!
