About the Author

At the ripe old age of ten, Gitty and her classmates underwent an IQ test followed by a short interview. A week later, it was announced that of the twenty-five students in her class, twenty had been chosen for the Talented and Gifted Program. Gitty, along with two foreign exchange students who could barely speak English, was in the remaining five. That day she went home and explained to her parents that she believed working at the mall's food court was her destiny for she was neither talented nor gifted. Decades later, Gitty realized that more important than being 'talented' is finding something you love and working hard at it.

Reviews

Keeps readers giggling. * SLJ * This...amusing chapter book goes down easy. Even with the fate of the world resting on their 'slightly hunched' shoulders, the main characters are so disarmingly upfront about their inadequacies that they'll definitely have readers on their side. * Booklist * Pokes sly fun at the pressure to raise future valedictorians and CEOs, by turning the tables on the classic trope of an average kid discovering greatness...Daneshvari's fast-paced, twisty story is chock-full of clever humor. * Publisher's Weekly * Delivers hilarious shenanigans...This humorous new series is sure to appeal to fans of Daneshvari and other lovers of the ludicrous. * Kirkus * Code-cracking caper * The School Run *
