Supergifted by Gordon Korman is the sequel to Ungifted. Since I read that recently, I figured it was time to go ahead and read the sequel as well. I am happy that I did.
Supergifted continues to follow the story of Donovan and his friend Noah. They are no longer at the Academy, and they have both transferred to the regular middle school. Noah has an IQ of over 200, but wanted to experience being a “normal” or “average” kid. He is purposefully doing poorly in his classes. Then he signs up to be a cheerleader.
Through a sequence of events, Noah and Donovan end up outside of a Lacrosse player’s house at the moment that a propane truck’s brakes give out. The propane truck starts rolling down the driveway and across the street. Donovan takes off to stop the truck and is able to keep it from running into the house across the street and it instead ends up in the pool in the backyard. He likely saved the lives of the family in that house. That house belongs to the head cheerleader, Megan.
Unfortunately, Donovan was not supposed to be anywhere near the lacrosse player or his house. He and Noah hide and flee the scene. A search ensues for the “Superkid” hero who saved the head cheerleader’s family. Noah takes credit, and hilarity ensues.
As usual, this is a great novel. The characterization continues to be great, and we meet some new characters in Donovan’s life. The story is interesting, and the pacing is excellent. I really enjoyed this book.
I am off to read my next book. Since I am working on a mystery display for work, I think it will be From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler by e.l. konigsburg. I have to work again tomorrow, so I am going to try to fit this one in before I go to sleep tonight. Until next time, Happy Reading!
