This book has a more harder vocabulary but it was a very interesting and it made you want to read more and more! This is good for a young reader such as I and even then, adults can enjoy it too

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.

This reminds me of some of the "classic" Gordon Korman books I read when I was a pre-teen/teen. I think he really nailed it with the characters, dialogue, comedic timing for several passages. All-around great story and characters. Includes both funny and serious/poignant sections in a nice balance.

Hilarious! This was a fun, laugh out loud read that I will definitely read to my sixth graders for years to come. Korman is a guru.

An excellent read. Korman deftly weaves a funny and amusing plot, complete with robots and a baby.

Donovan Curtis has never been called gifted. Trouble maker, calamity, rapskallion maybe, but no one would ever call him smart. But after a disaster of epic proportions, involving Atlas's globe and the gym doors in the middle of a basketball game, Donovan somehow ends up transfered to the Academy for Scholastic Distinction, a school for extremely smart students.

Donovan sticks out like a sore thumb. He's failing all his classes, but everyone believes that he will show what he is truly good at soon. He is good at driving the Academy's robot for the robot competition, but is that enough to keep him at ASD, and away from the eyes of the Superintendant who is looking for the young man who caused the epic disaster?

This is a typical Gordon Korman book. Solid storytelling, accompanied by good characers and ridiculous situations. There is an interesting exploration of the meaning of "gifted", but in the end this is a good outing for Korman, one that his audience of reluctant readers will enjoy.
