summary

the word gifted has never applied to the kid Donovan Curtis so when Donovan pulls a major prank at his middle school he think's has finally took it way to far. but thanks to a mix-up from one of the administrators instead of getting in trouble Donovan is sent to the academy of scholastic distinction (asd) a special program for gifted and talented students. it wasn't exactly what Donovan had intended but there couldn't be a more perfect hideout for someone like him. that is, if he can manage to fool people whose IQs are above genius level and that becomes harder and harder as the student and teachers ASD grow to realize that that Donovan is not good at pretty much anything but after an ongoing experiment with a live human (sister) an unforgettably dramatic middle school dance and the most astonishing come-from-behind robot victory ever, Donovan shows that his gifts might be exactly what the asd students never knew they needed.
