Thirteen-year-old Gabe Carpenter is just like any other middle-school boy at St. Jude Academy…well, except for the fact that based on his scores on some seventh grade test, he is considered a “genius” and is placed in an enrichment class with other gifted students. But he sure doesn’t seem like a genius—after all, he can’t even open his own locker and his brain stops functioning when Becca, his sister’s best friend, comes around.
