Ungifted by Gordon Korman

Ungifted by Gordon Korman is a funny cause and effect story.  Ungifted was a RICBA nominee in 2014.  Read it to find out what happens when Donovan, an impulsive likable main character, whacks a statue's butt.  Events are sent "rolling" as Donovan tries to keep from getting into trouble.  The humor of this book lies in the author's ability to keep Donovan dodging, as he tries to avoid one kind of problem or another.  Korman is the author of Swindle and Zoobreak.  Ungifted is similar to each of those books, and like them, it is centered on a group of students trying to navigate the adult world of rules.  Read and enjoy!
