Reading List #6

Here is the sixth installment of the Winter Reading List. I will be posting these recommendations until January 1, 2016.

6. Ungifted

Description: When Donovan Curtis pulls a major prank at his middle school, he thinks he’s finally gone too far. But thanks to a mix-up by one of the administrators, instead of getting in trouble, Donovan is sent to the Academy of Scholastic Distinction, a special program for gifted and talented students.
Although it wasn’t exactly what Donovan had intended, the ASD couldn’t be a more perfectly unexpected hideout for someone like him. But as the students and teachers of ASD grow to realize that Donovan may not be good at math or science (or just about anything), he shows that his gifts may be exactly what the ASD students never knew they needed. 

Review: Ungifted is a heart-warming story that has the spunky tone of genius kids, average kids, and teachers alike. Telling the story of the ungifted Donovan Curtis, we can look into the views of all the characters, and find out what truly makes each one gifted. It is a great story that shows how even if our IQ tests don't support the fact, we are all gifted-- in many different forms.
