    1. E ARC from NetgalleyJonathan and Shelley are so nondescript in the overachieving neighborhood of Evanston, Virginia, that everyone in their school assumes they are the new kids every time they see them When they are brought to the school office by the nurse, they meet a shadowy man, Mr Hammett, who tells them that they are going to become spies and save the vice president, who has been kidnapped and could give away top secret security codes The two children don t feel prepared enough to be spies [...]

    2. This was an OK book It wasn t as exciting as I expected it to be, given the title and premise I felt like the author, although having tried, did a poor job in creating this spectacular world where unexceptional i.e very ordinary, average children were being recruited and trained to go on really important missions It was a quick, easy read, but not great Two kids are recruited and given very little background with very little explanation and very little time to train before they are off on a miss [...]

    3. The League of Unexceptional Children by Gitty Daneshvari The League of Unexceptional Children by Gitty Daneshvari is published by Little, Brown Books for Young Readers I gave it two stars I wanted to like it I tried to like it I just didn t I had to force myself to finish reading it Two unexceptional children are conscripted by the government to save the country They are easily forgettable I received a complimentary kindle copy from NetGalley That did not change my opinion review.

    4. Tristan does his first live book review for our blog He has wanted to review books for awhile and I finally said yes when we got a bunch of middle grade books from Book Expo America The League of Unexceptional Children was the first book he picked out of the stack and he just breezed through it This book comes out in October Tristan is 9 and loved it

    5. This was a bit too silly for my taste, but I get why the students who recommended it enjoyed it so much.

    6. Unexceptional, But It Has Its MomentsThe basic premise here is popping up and Two kids are so average and blandly invisible they are recruited by the League of Unexceptional Children to operate as spies The running joke is that no one ever notices or remembers them so they are functionally undercover even when they re out in the open That premise allows the narrator and the characters to take a lot of pot shots at our supposed succeed at all costs culture Putting aside whether you think that c [...]

    7. Gitty Daneshvari, author of the School of Fear series, is back with the first in a new series THE LEAGUE OF UNEXCEPTIONAL CHILDREN While I love the premise, I think this will be the only book in this series I tryE LEAGUE OF UNEXCEPTIONAL CHILDREN posits that children who are unremarkable, forgettable, utterly average make the best spies Very few notice them in the first place, and no one remembers them The book promptly deflates its own premise by having the children accompanied by an adult, bec [...]

    8. What I should have finished in a few hours took me several days because I was too busy doing HALLOWEEN Frankly though, I wasn t all that enthused about reading it The characters across the board were annoying and had schticks that were meant to be funny but weren t Arthur, the adult who let the kid steal the Vice President, was such an indescribably stupid dolt he angered me immediately Shelly was the kind of child that would have made me want to stick my head in a trash can just to escape her I [...]

    9. An appropriately unexceptional bookI was really intrigued by the concept of this book and was looking forward to a good read What immediately impressed, though, was the utter lack of semblance to reality the book possessed That being said, while the reality is off, I think there will be many kids who relate to these characters in feeling overlooked, unremembered, unremarkable But the main characters are seriously extreme versions of this not only are the unexceptional, they are pretty much entir [...]

    10. Traditionally heroes have had super powers, an incredible intellect, or some feature that distinguishes an individual as extraordinary In this book it s the protagonist s lack of the extraordinary that makes them exceptional at doing their job, which is to blend in and not get noticed This is also what makes the protagonists easy to relate with in many cases they re very much like the reader.The writing style is quirky and the book is filled with awkward moments, failures, and fumbling However, [...]

    11. The description of the book doesn t do it justice It s way cooler than what that description said, mom, Laila told me when we finished reading it I agree When we read books like this, the one chapter a night rule is a real bummer If I didn t have that rule in place, we would have read it all in one sitting Read full review wordgurgle 2015 0

    12. I had an opportunity to read a digital ARC of this book from NetGalley This review is based on uncorrected advance content The main characters in this fun spy novel, Jonathan and Shelley, are selected to be part of a secret network of spies because they are extremely ordinary kids able to be invisible and blend in.For my complete review, please visit my blogpost janatheteacher

    13. Will never get that time in my life back Didn t take my own advice to abandon Had hope but it just never got better.

    14. Review by James, age 8This book is about three children Jonathan, Mary, and Shelly They are about 10 to 12 years old The kids have a lot of hidden talents, but they ve spent almost their entire lives being ignored not all of it though It turns out that they re wanted to be spies by the government because the Vice President was kidnapped by a teenager, and the he also stole a bunch of documents including the first nuclear code The documents belonged to places like the FBI And the kids task is to [...]

    15. Although the idea of this book, unexceptional children as spies, is interesting and fun, the story was a bit disappointing The characters are so exaggerated that it s not even funny any The rambling of Shelly gets rather annoying after a while And if it was just the two unexceptional children who were strange, it would have been believable But all characters are over the top.The story itself is one in a billion There are many other better books in this genre More exciting and believable ones Wh [...]

    16. My Rating 2.5 of 5 between It s OK and I Liked It This is a cute book with a fun premise, using a network of the average and nondescript children for espionage and adventure It was pretty funny, but it missed on the suspense and adventure side of things Yes, it s possible to be all of the above a funny story with adventure and mystery too but the suspenseful side never really clicked together, and at times it felt rushed or forced than anything else I wanted to like it, I really did, and it s n [...]

    17. Fantastic book I thought that this book was funny and exciting My favourite character was Shelley because she was funny, and bossy and got things muddled up but she was kind too I would recommend this book to kids that loved Time Travelling with a Hamster By Alexander aged 7

    18. I really liked this book because it was funny and some people where so stupid it made them funny Also, the scenes where so weird and funny There is this one scence where the two children make a quick getaway and then the waned poster doesn t say anything about them.

    19. The 10 year old gave this 4.5 stars and the 13 year old gave it 3.5 stars My rating is aligned with the 13 year old I would have enjoyed it if I had not read out loud Still, we had fun attempting to solve the mystery.

    20. I listened to the audiobook cd of this on a road trip, and me and my 9 year old both gave it 5 stars It was hilarious at times and I chuckled out loud It was the perfect way to pass time in the car It would make a funny movie.

    21. Cute concept, disappointing execution I could have done without all the fat jokes about the security guard eating so much and wearing ill fitting clothes Audio reader would have been just right if I was listening with children, but her voices all grated a bit on my boring grown up ears.

    22. This book was great in mystery and had many jokes that made sense for people who are unexceptional I felt like the end was rushed but otherwise, perfect in my mind.

    23. A lively kids story, full of wise cracks and charming characters I m sure many of the kids at school will love it I would imagine one or two will even be inspired to be ordinary, run of the mill heroic spies like the kids in the book

    24. Stuff I Read The League of Unexceptional Children by Gitty Daneshvari ReviewThis book caught me a bit by surprise On one level, it s a book that takes aim at spy tropes and turns them on their head, poking fun at the idea that the best and brightest would be best suited for being the least memorable The book focuses on Jonathan and Shelly, two kids who are constantly overlooked They are ignored, unheard And that is where the book is the most interesting and also the most troubling, because while [...]

    25. AudioBook Review Stars Overall 3 Narration 3 Story 3.5Jonathan and Shelley are just kids not first or last picks in sports, not first or last picks in friends, average grades, in fact, they are often forgotten not long after they leave a room While not Exceptional, these two are completely the opposite, and the perfect fit for a new mission to save the United States from danger and destruction The League of Unexceptional Children is the story of how Jonathan and Shelly came to join this group of [...]

    26. Jonathan and Shelley are highly unexceptional They re so unremarkable that most people forget they ve interacted with them immediately if they ever noticed they were there at all This makes them ideal candidates for the League of Unexceptional Children, a top secret government agency that hires forgettable, average kids to perform super important missions When they re recruited by a couple of shady characters, Jonathan and Shelley aren t sure they re up to the task or even what the task exactly [...]

    27. When the stupidest Secret Service agent allows the Vice President to be snatched, along with a computer containing some of the U.S government s secretest secrets, none of the country s top spies can do anything about it because they re only one password away from having their cover blown and the Vice President, who has that password, has a very low threshold of torture With the country on the brink of ruin and its best and brightest out of the game, all depends on two completely mediocre Evansto [...]
