Donovan, whose real gift is getting into trouble, finds himself at an academy for gifted students!

Donovan is definitely skilled... at getting into trouble. And when one of his thoughtless pranks accidentally destroys the school gym during the Big Game, with the superintendent watching, he knows he's in for it. Suspension at best, maybe expulsion. Either way, a lawsuit and paying for damages. But through a strange chain of events, his name gets put on the list for the local school for gifted students: the Academy for Scholastic Distinction. Donovan knows he's not a genius, but he can't miss this chance to escape.

Now, he has to figure out a way to stay at ASD - and fit in with the kids there. And who knows, maybe his real gift will come to light...

A new story from the master of middle-grade and YA humour Gordon Korman, Ungifted is a funny exploration of the special (and often surprising) talents that make each of us gifted in our own way.

Gordon Korman wrote his first novel, This Can't Be Happening at Macdonald Hall!, when he was only 12 years old. To date, he has written 70 middle-grade and YA novels, including three titles in the #1 New York Times bestselling series The 39 Clues. Gordon grew up in Thornhill, Ontario and now lives with his family in Great Neck, New York. Connect with him at www.gordonkorman.com.

Praise for Ungifted:

"Gordon Korman . . . always writes from his heart. He has written more than 70 books and . . . Ungifted was one of the best I have read." -The National Post (James, age 11)

"Funny and insightful." -Publishers Weekly

"Touching, without being overly sentimental, Ungifted is a gem for readers looking for a story where the underdog comes out on top." -VOYA

"Donovan has a goofy kindness that charms characters and readers alike . . . The message is tolerance, and Korman expertly and humorously delivers it in an unpretentious and universally appealing tale." -School Library Journal
