The word gifted has never been applied to a kid like Donovan Curtis. It’s usually more like Don’t try this at home. So when the troublemaker pulls a major prank at his middle school, he thinks he’s finally gone too far. But thanks to a mix-up by one of the administrators, instead of getting in trouble, Donovan is sent to a special programme 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 fool people whose IQs are above genius level. But after an experiment with a live human, an unforgettably dramatic middle-school dance, and the most astonishing come-from-behind robot victory ever come together, Donovan finally shows that his ‘gifts’ might be exactly what these smart students never knew they needed.
