Donovan Curtis is definitely not gifted. So how did he end up at the Academy of Scholastic Distinction surrounded by gifted kids who do math for fun? After pulling a prank that should have gotten him into major trouble, Donovan needs to hide out where no one would ever think to look for him. It will take dodging a grumpy dog, fooling suspicious teachers and building a fighting robot to help Donovan discover some new friends in the most unlikely of places.
