Bookmarked Ungifted by Gordon Korman (Scholastic Inc.)

This funny and touching underdog story is a lovable and goofy adventure with robot fights, middle-school dances, live experiments, and statue-toppling pranks! When Donovan Curtis 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 the Academy of Scholastic Distinction, a special program for gifted and talented students. Although it wasn’t exactly what Donovan had intended, the ASD couldn’t be a more perfectly unexpected hideout for someone like him. But as the students and teachers of ASD grow to realize that Donovan may not be good at math or science (or just about anything), he shows that his gifts may be exactly what the ASD students never knew they needed.

Things get a bit more far-fetched while running The Pretzel, but the fantasy of the story just sweeps you up.

Also delved into the beginning of the next chapter where everyone stands up for Artie. He’s really got them around his finger now…

📖 Read pages 93-117 Chapter 7 “No Frills” of No Coins, Please by Gordon Corman

Though there are some leaps which the reader is likely only all-too-happy-to make, you have to love the way that Artie comes out to his fellow campers while running the no-frills milk store. I can just see Rob and Dennis waking up to the fact that it isn’t just Artie who’s gone, but their entire group.
