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.

    : Donovan Curtis is Ungifted. He has a normal IQ and doesn't get extraordinary grades. But last year, he accidentally got sent to a school for gifted kids. There, he met Noah Youkilis, who is Supergifted. Noah has an IQ of 200, which is higher than Albert Einstein's. This year though, Donovan is going to school where he usually does: Hardcastle Middle School, a school for regular ungifted people. But now, Noah is also going to Hardcastle Middle School. Things are going okay, Noah is thrilled to be getting average grades on his report cards, and Donovan and his two friends are protecting Noah so he doesn't get picked on by bullies. But that's until Noah decides that he wants to join the cheerleading squad. His clumsiness angers the star of the lacrosse team, Hash Taggart, also known as Hash Tag. One thing leads to another, and pretty soon, Donovan has leaped into a moving propane truck and steered it away from a house, saving the people inside. The mysterious kid who saved the house becomes known as 'Superkid', and the whole town is looking for him. Donovan doesn't want to admit that he's Superkid, so Noah steps in and claims he's Superkid. Now, not only is Noah Supergifted, he's also Superkid, at least everyone thinks so. But what if they find out?

          In a world where there are superheroes there is one super hero that is not so super but he does have a friend that is SUPERGIFTED. There's this kid named Dovan and his friend Noah and their best friends. The story takes place at a school and house and friends houses and gifted school. Dovan is not that smart but Noah he is the smartest kid in the state but then something bad happens. A propane truck goes for a house but Dovan runs to the propane truck and he jumps into the truck and makes it go into a pool of a popular cheerleader that goes to Dovans school. Then the next few days everyone in town knows what happened but they didn’t know who saved the cheerleader. Everyone is calling this mystery kid SUPER KID. Dovan did not want to be the SUPER KID so Noah took his place but Noah is not the super kid so Noah has to lie and lie and lie but he knows what happened because he was there when Dovan went into the truck So are they going to be able to lie so Dovan does not get caught or does he. This book was fun to read and it has a lot of shocking moments and the book is not as long. Plus there are a lot of main characters so that's cool. The age for this book should be about 11, 12, 13 I think that would be a good age to read this book. If I was going to recommend this book to someone I would recommend it to a person who likes shocking moments, a lot of main characters, someone who likes the books about lying and not trying to get caught. This book is a sequel to UNGIFTED! I love this book!

                Supergifted is an amazing book that further interests the reader in a wonderful sequel to Ungifted. In this book, after a horrible experience between Donovan's dog (Beatrice) and "Hashtag", Donovan is instructed to stay off Saunton Street, but sticking up for Noah brings him right there. But unlucky for Donovan, he saves a life on the street and becomes a hero- or he is a hero, but he keeps it a secret, just to save Beatrice. That is when the book gets interesting, and Noah takes the credit for being Superkid..... This is an amazing book that real good book that readers can not put down unless they are done reading.

                  Donovan was never smart, but his friend Noah is! Noah wants to fail, and I know it's weird, but blame the book! He wants to go to a normal school, but it isn't as good as he was hoping. Things get rough with a jock and his friend, so Donovan will get in trouble with Hash, the jock, if he finds out what he did. Now it's up to Noah to rise and be the star.....

                      Gordon Korman is a great author but unfortunately this book wasn’t really good for me. The 1st book was great but this one wasn’t. First and Lastly of al Noah was EXTREMELY annoying and that’s all i have to say on the matter, i was highly unimpressed with Noah in this book . don’t read it i feel like he should write a new sequel
