Ungifted by Gordon Korman
reviewed by Alicia
Ungifted by Gordon Korman is one of the most intriguing books I've read. Publishers Weekly calls it "Funny and insightful"
It includes a change of point of view alternating between characters.
Ungifted is about a troublemaker named Donovan Curtis who, because of a mix-up, crash-lands in The Academy of Scholastic Distinction, a school for geniuses. He hides out from the administrator, Dr. Schultz, hoping that no one will find out his big secret. He'll need to prove himself gifted, and avoid getting kicked out of the school, or he'll undoubtedly face big consequences. Donovan must work through the gifted program, and, find out some things about himself. He realizes everyone is gifted. Donovan saves the Academy from summer school. He even teaches lessons to the Academy kids, including how to be normal.
Filled with laughs, IQ's and robots, I'd recommend this book to any friend who is feeling Ungifted.
