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.
-great book

It's a great book for people that are into robotics but also enjoy humor.

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.
