Gordon Korman’s newest stand-alone novel, featuring Greenwich Middle School’s class of outcasts and miscreants — The Unteachables!
In the multiple-narrator format that Gordon perfected in Ungifted and Supergifted, this book tells the story of Greenwich Middle School’s class SCS-8, a.k.a The Unteachables!
The Unteachables are a wayward medley of characters: Parker the dyslexic farm boy; Aldo, who is perpetually angry; Elaine (rhymes with pain); Barnstorm the jock; Rahim the sleep-deprived artist; and Mateo, lost in fantasy worlds. Plus Kiana, who is just in town visiting her dad and isn’t even registered with the school. Not to mention their teacher, Mr. Ribbit — er, Mr. Kermit — who remains in disgrace after a 25-year-old cheating scandal and is just killing time, doing crossword puzzles and waiting to take early retirement at the end of the year.
Are they really incorrigible, or is it possible they are just misunderstood? This unlikely group of heroes is about to find out for themselves.
