The School For The Insanely Gifted

The School For The Insanely Gifted By: Dan Elish

Daphna is a very gifted young lady. She attends the School for the Insanely Gifted, where she is composing a piano rhapsody, her two friends are inventing things like flying go carts, and creating Broadway musicals.  She is haunted by the fact that her mother has disappeared, so she continues to live alone in their apartment with her landlord's family watching over her.  She knows her mother will return.  But when a strange antelope many begins to follow her and hunts her down asking strange questions and she finds a picture of her mother with two men and the name is what the antelope man was asking about, Daphna knows something is up?  Her two close friends and her are off on an adventure to solve the mystery.

I thought this was an interesting book. It was sure full of kids with special talents. I liked how there was a mystery that the kids were trying to solve and that the bad guy was someone that they least expected. I thought the twist at the end was a great one and at  least gave Daphna something that she had been missing out on in her life.  Great read for I would say fourth grade and up.

I borrowed this from the public library.
