Donovan's essential ungiftedness changes the shape of the Academy of Scholastic Distinction, and is the driving theme of this book. Ungifted is largely character-driven which is part of its charm.

Class learn sex ed/human growth and development

Donovan is the novel’s central character, its protagonist and one of its many narrators. He is in his mid-teens, comes from what might be described as a relatively average family and, as he himself understands, is driven by his impulses. Encouraged by his two best friends, Donovan says what he wants, does what he feels inclined to do in the moment he feels the inclination, and tends to do does both without a clear sense, or consideration, of potential consequences.

At first this aspect of Donovan seems to be primarily negative: the narrative is initiated, and almost entirely driven, by the results of Donovan’s ultimately destructive impulse to take a powerful swing (with a tree branch) at a statue outside his school. But while the narrative doesn’t necessarily, or directly, condone Donovan’s actions – or, for that matter, his tendency to act on impulse

A great book about friendship. When a student makes a mistake his friends are there to help him grow and learn along the way. ( )

Gordon Korman is always hit or miss for me. This one is a hit. It's really funny and the characters are all different and interesting to boot.

Main character Donovan is the prankster type. As luck would have it, his best prank isn't even intentional. He hits the Atlas (character from [b: Atlas Shrugged|662|Atlas Shrugged|Ayn Rand|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1405868167s/662.jpg|817219]) statue with a stick and the globe flies off, crashes through the gym door and rolls onto the floor in the middle of a basketball game. The superintendent catches him, interrogates him and writes his name down. Having a personality similar to the principal on "Ferris Bueller's Day Off," he mistakenly writes it on the list of students going to the gifted school. The next thing Donovan knows, he's enrolled in the gifted program and MIA as far as the superintendent can tell.

At the gifted school the kids quickly figure out that Donovan is not gifted, at least in the way they are. What he has is a knack for finding solutions and helping his new peers improve their social skills. The lesson from this book is not original, but still nice to have reinforced now and then. "Don't judge a book by it's cover." Donovan finds out that the "nerds" are actually pretty cool. When his friends from the regular school trash talk the gifted kids, Donovan sticks up for them. Donovan joins the robotics club and makes sure that the school who always wins the competition is dethroned, but not in the way you think. I recommend this book for boys who don't like to read. ( )
