Editorial Reviews

Praise for Ungifted:"Gordon Korman . . . always writes from his heart. He has written more than 70 books and . . . Ungifted was one of the best I have read." -The National Post (James, age 11) "Funny and insightful." -Publishers Weekly"Touching, without being overly sentimental, Ungifted is a gem for readers looking for a story where the underdog comes out on top." -VOYA"Donovan has a goofy kindness that charms characters and readers alike . . . The message is tolerance, and Korman expertly and humorously delivers it in an unpretentious and universally appealing tale." -School Library Journal
