Perpetuating the stereotypes of gifted and "normal" kids, this unrealistic book was a big disappointment. Even though I usually love Gordon Korman's books, this is not one I'd recommend.

I love Donovan and his mischievous character. This book represents the 'use' of playing video games! They really should have had a little better ending though...

Like many of Gordon Korman's books, this is a great story with an interesting way of changing the point of view and plenty of humour. Donovan is a very interesting character, though personally I enjoyed Katie.

Very well written, hilarious. Even as the parent, I couldn't put it down. Entertaining captivating read for your elementary schooler.

The story plot was awesome! the book is so touching and lovingly beautiful. The message so strong and Gordan Korman ties every end together in such an effective use of words and references as well as just summing up the power of change in a fun, hilarious and yet heartwarming way! Every character is perfectly portrayed and I love how Gordan Korman used them all as a way of affecting Donnavan. All of the characters warm my heart, but I think my favorite is Noah. I read this all in one sitting (which I can never help doing anyways) and it's totally worth it! I LOVED IT!!!!
