The League of Unexceptional Children: The Kids Who Knew Too Little (Hardcover)
The final book in a smart, funny, and exceptional middle grade series about unexceptionals from School of Fear author Gitty Daneshvari!
About the Author
Gitty Daneshvari was an average child, the kind who never made much of a mark academically, athletically, or socially, so it hardly came as a surprise when she was rejected from her school's Talented and Gifted Program. On the contrary, Gitty had long ago accepted that she simply wasn't "special," unless of course you counted her long list of phobias (please read School of Fear for further explanation). Luckily, as Gitty aged, she realized that while she lacked natural talent, there was nothing stopping her from figuring out what she enjoyed and then working hard to become better at it.
Praise for The League of Unexceptional Children:
"Delivers hilarious shenanigans...This humorous new series is sure to appeal to fans of Daneshvari and other lovers of the ludicrous."—Kirkus Reviews
"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."—Publishers Weekly
"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
"Keeps readers giggling."—SLJ
"It will hook readers and have them anxiously awaiting the next adventure."—School Library Connection
