AKA GENIUS

Product Description
A.K.A. Genius

By Marilee Haynes

"I chew on my lip and pull at a loose thread on my sock. Just that word, 'genius,' makes me feel different, like I'm not me anymore. The top of my head starts tingling, and my stomach goes queasy. The kind of queasy like when you're not sure if you want to get on the tallest, fastest roller coaster at the amusement park. Because if you do, you might get the ride of your life. Or you might throw up all over the person in front of you. It feels like that."

When you get Bs in history and have to play H-I-P-P-O-P-T-A-M-U-S instead of H-O-R-S-E just to keep up with your best friend, seeing yourself as "gifted" is a real stretch. But when standardized test scores identify seventh-grader Gabe Carpenter as St. Jude's resident genius, he wonders what it means to have brains when he can't even manage to open his own locker.

This fiction book has themes of self-acceptance, giftedness, and humor.
