The highly anticipated sequel to Ungifted from #1 New York Times bestselling author Gordon Korman.

Donovan Curtis has never been what anyone would call “gifted.” But his genius friend Noah Youkilis is actually supergifted, with one of the highest IQs around. After years at the Academy for Scholastic Distinction, all Noah dreams of is the opportunity to fail if he wants to. And he’s landed in the perfect place to do it—Donovan’s school.

Almost immediately, Noah finds himself on the wrong side of cheerleading captain Megan Mercury and alpha jock Hash “Hashtag” Taggart. Sticking up for Noah lands Donovan in the middle of a huge feud with Hashtag. He’s told to stay away from the sports star—or else.

That should be the end of it, but when a freak incident suddenly makes Donovan a hero, he can’t tell anyone about it since Hashtag is involved. So Noah steps in and becomes “Superkid.” Now he’s gone from nerd to titan at school. And it may have gone more than a little bit to his head.

This funny and heartwarming sequel to Ungifted, which has become a word-of-mouth hit, cleverly sends up our ideas about intelligence, heroism, and popularity.

      Even though there were some negative reviews about the sequel to Ungifted, I really liked this book. In it, Donovan saves a cheerleaders house from getting blown up in a neighborhood he was not permitted to be in, and everybody wants to know who the "Superkid" is.

        This sequel to Ungifted was disappointing. It was kind of confusing, and the humor was warped. I wanted to continue the story of Ungifted, not change main characters. This is a complete opinion, but I think this book was confusing and not funny.

          Overall this was not a good book. I don't think that it was worded very well. It was a little confusing for me because I haven't read the first book, which is Ungifted. If anyone is looking for a good book to read this is not the one. There are many other good books for that. I would not recommend this book.

            Ungifted is one of my favorite books by Gordon Korman. I was thrilled that there was a sequel.While Supergifted is not quite as good as its predecessor, it still is worth reading.

              Supergifted is a book about this boy who is bullied by some other boys for some secret. I have not read this book yet but I have read the previews and it sounds like a great book.

                Donavon's life couldn't get any better. He only has a super strict brother in law who relates everything he does to the Marines, and a newborn niece screaming at five in the morning. On top of that, he has to protect his friend from the Academy, Noah Youkilis, from the bullies who torment him because of his 206 point IQ. Just when things couldn't get any worse Donavon ends up saving the head cheerleader's house from burning. That would be a good thing but Donovan was not supposed to be on that street on account of a certain command from a certain Marine officer. When the town finds out about the Superkid who saved a family, Donovan has to try not to let them know who did it. This is the companion book to the Ungifted book. I really liked it and thought that it was a good story.

                  It was a good book. It show 2 friends who are smart, one is super gifted. being smart is not everything, it shows how they can get into and out of trouble at school.

                    The Gordon Korman has the most incredible books in the world. He wrote so many books and they are so incredible. I really wish I had all of his books, I could practicly read all of them in a day. Books are the most awesome thing in the world real.

                      This book was part of the Battle of the Books competition and quickly became everyone on the teams favorite book. We all loved how we could relate to it, without it being sad and or disappointing!
