Families can talk about the various kids' feelings about being in a school for gifted students. Why does Noah the genius hate it so much, while other kids are right at home? Why do you think books about middle school are so popular? What does Donovan learn from the kids at the academy? What do they learn from him?

Great for parents and upper-elementary or higher kids

This book was so much fun that I wanted to keep reading even after my son had gone to bed. It has some humor that he might have missed, but a lot that he understood. It talks about the older sister's pregnancy in a very reasonable way. The title character changes a bit less than I'd like, but he is a better person in the end.
