Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Very funny"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Ungifted to be better than the print version?

    I don't know, I only listened to the audio!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Ungifted?

    The opening was hilarious, total Korman.


    Did the narrators do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Yes - my only critiques are: I wish more narrators of young characters actually sounded young. And also: The narrator who was cast as Kate seemed totally wrong. She sounded really posh, whereas Kate came across much more brassy to me.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I probably could have, if I had time just to sit and listen to audiobooks.


    Any additional comments?

    Very cute.

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

    amazing, funny, interesting


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Donovan: he was clever, funny and changed and grew a lot throughout the book. Noah was a close second.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The Robotics competition.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It was a book we listened to together, so we snuggled into bed every night to listen.


    Any additional comments?

    This was my first Gordon Korman book and I am now a fan. I love that Korman writes intelligent, funny and engaging stories. It is one both kids and adults will both love! Such a fun cast of crazy and interesting characters. A delight for all! 5 stars

    "Ungifted: One of the best books I have ever read in my life"

    I think that Ungifted is a really great book. It shows a boy that once has no interest in robotics, to be part of a team that involves robots a lot! I love that the audiobook version had the different voices, so that you knew who was talking, instead of getting confused with who is speaking and who is not. I am recommending this to anyone that would enjoy a nice book that involves teamwork, and a book that involves a very good moral. This book was amazing, and I hope that people like me enjoy this book just like I did, and I hope that people read this and have hopes for another person to like the same thing.

    "I loved this book!"

    I love this book because it is very unpredictable and it all got put together in different point of views.
