Teens and pre-teens flock to any new offering from New York Times best-selling author Gordon Korman. Told through multiple viewpoints, Ungifted follows Donovan Curtis through his year at a magnet school for gifted and talented kids. Thanks to an administrative foul-up, the decidedly mediocre student Donovan finds himself enrolled in the Academy of Scholastic Distinction. Out of place and out of luck, Donovan joins the robotics team. And while he learns a few lessons from his gifted classmates, he also teaches a few of his own.

I don't know, I only listened to the audio!
The opening was hilarious, total Korman.
Yes - my only critiques are: I wish more narrators of young characters actually sounded young. And also: The narrator who was cast as Kate seemed totally wrong. She sounded really posh, whereas Kate came across much more brassy to me.
I probably could have, if I had time just to sit and listen to audiobooks.
amazing, funny, interesting
Donovan: he was clever, funny and changed and grew a lot throughout the book. Noah was a close second.
The Robotics competition.
It was a book we listened to together, so we snuggled into bed every night to listen.
This was my first Gordon Korman book and I am now a fan. I love that Korman writes intelligent, funny and engaging stories. It is one both kids and adults will both love! Such a fun cast of crazy and interesting characters. A delight for all! 5 stars
