2015 Rebecca Caudill Roundup: Ungifted by Gordon Korman

ungiftedUngifted is classic Gordon Korman–funny realistic fiction with likable characters in somewhat unlikely circumstances. Donovan Curtis is accidentally sent to a special academy for the gifted, and, rather than tell anyone it is a mistake, he hides out there to avoid being discovered and punished for a prank that accidentally lead to tremendous damage to his middle school’s gym. Donovan and his brilliant, yet socially awkward, classmates bond together over the upcoming robotics competition, dramatic events occur, and it all works out OK in the end. Multiple narrators with unique voices make this one of my favorites by Korman.

Last Spring, Ungifted  was a featured title in Scholastic book fairs. Check out this fun trailer that appeared in the fair preview video.
