At some point, we have all done something dumb. Donovan Curtis does many, many dumb things.  But when he destroys his junior high school gymnasium, he knows he has gone too far.  Donovan doesn’t try to do bad things, he just doesn’t think before he acts.  So he knows that he has to find a place to hide so he won’t get in major trouble from the superintendent.  Donovan mistakenly gets invited to be it the gifted school in the district.  He knows that he isn’t above average in intelligence, but he knows that the superintendent would never look for him in the gifted school.  So Donovan goes to the gifted school and every teacher at the school wonders why Donovan is gifted.  Donovan does his best to fit in and become friends with his classmates, but will he pass as a genius?

This book is one of the most hilarious books I have read in a long time.  Donovan is such a crazy kid and he gets in hilarious situations.  Donovan introduces one of his classmates to Youtube.  The results are funny and will have you laughing out loud.
