    (40)

    Teens and pre-teens flock to any new offering from New York Times best-selling author Gordon Korman. Told through multiple viewpoints, Ungifted follows Donovan Curtis through his year at a magnet school for gifted and talented kids. Thanks to an administrative foul-up, the decidedly mediocre student Donovan finds himself enrolled in the Academy of Scholastic Distinction. Out of place and out of luck, Donovan joins the robotics team. And while he learns a few lessons from his gifted classmates, he also teaches a few of his own.

    If you could sum up Ungifted in three words, what would they be?

    Funny, smart, light-hearted


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Chloe. She is super smart but yet relatable enough to average people to not be a social outcast. Good in between character to convey both sides of the story.


    What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Additional vividness to the characters.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Donavan was taking the test and realized that someone cared for him enough to try to keep him in the school.


    Any additional comments?

    Good book that will keep you hooked till the end

    When a petty thief falls though a glass roof in his attempt to escape from the police, what should have been the death of him marks the beginning of a while new life. After his broken body is reconstructed by an ambitious young doctor, he is released from prison, and, with the help of Victorian London's extensive sewer system, he becomes the most elusive burglar in the city.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Montmorency to be better than the print version?

    OH for sure!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Montmorency/Scarper. He acts so classy but in reality he is a genius thief. He acts as completely different people with different ideals, almost making you wonder about multiple personality disorder!


    Which character – as performed by Stephen Fry – was your favorite?

    Montmorency/Scarper


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Gentleman by day, Crook by night

  • How Angel Peterson Got His Name: And Other Outrageous Tales about Extreme Sports

    Gary Paulsen’s slapstick tales capture the “wonderful madness” of growing up in a small town in northern Minnesota, when high spirits, showing off for girls, and general idiocy led Gary and his pals to attempt some amazing stunts! Wacky, daring, just plain nuts - extreme sports lead to extreme fun in new stories from Gary’s boyhood.

    What does Patrick Lawlor bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He brought a little extra tone and helped bring the characters to life in the imagination.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Please don't try what you are about to see at home!
