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.
This book felt a little like a wackier, lighter, more robot-filled readalike of R.J. Palacio's "Wonder." It presented a nice reminder that brainiacs have issues too, and even mischief-minded folks can be thoughtful and sensitive. For middle schoolers (and others, too!) looking for something both relatable and fun, "Ungifted" might be a good choice.
