really,really,really,REALLY funny. : )

What a great way to learn important lessons without even knowing you are being taught. Who would ever think of teaching Sex education by bringing your pregnant sister to class? I think only Gordon Korman could do it. A great book emphasising the common struggles both the regular kids and the "gifted" kids have. Lots of great laugh moments to enjoy.

I think this book is awesome!!!!!!!!

Great book with a great message! Donovan struggles in school and has become a prankster to get attention. A prank go wrong and some odd circumstances have him attending a school for academically gifted children where he realizes he has his own gifts!

"Expecting to be expelled after his latest prank goes spectacularly (and very expensively) wrong, eighth-grader Donovan Curtis is instead admitted -- by mistake -- to the Academy of Scholastic Distinction, a special school for gifted and talented students. But Donovan isn't telling anyone about the administrative error; he's just going to keep his head down and hide out among the brainy kids. Or at least, that's the plan... Donovan's experience as a sort of stowaway at ASD is one that fans of funny, character-driven, feel-good stories will love reading about."

Ungifted is a pretty good book which includes a little suspense combined with laughter. I liked the middle part where the main character Donavan was voted by his class to most likely to end up in jail that gave me the laughs.
