The day after Donovan Curtis exercises colossally bad judgment regarding a prized statue of Atlas at school and the superintendent, by his own admission, makes a big mistake, Donovan finds himself plucked from Hardcastle Middle School and enrolled in the Academy for Academic Distinction. In the story that follows, his classmates; his pregnant sister, Katie, along with her pregnant dog, Beatrice; and a robotics class bring Donovan to a new understanding of himself. Donovan’s story is told from a multiple points of view, with each narrator taking on a different personality. And, boy, do they nail the parts! Listeners will delight in the alternately ecstatic and despondent Donovan, the demanding superintendent, the goofy friends Daniel and Daniel, and the YouTube fanatic and head nerd Noah, to name a few.
