Sequel to: Ungifted.

Donovan is back at Hardcastle, along with nerdy genius Noah Youkilis who is being bullied by a basketball star. One evening, Donovan gets word of Noah heading over to the bully's house to challenge him. Donovan rushes out to stop him. During the argument, the boys notice an out of control propane tanker. Donovan leaps into the moving truck and steers it to safety, and the boys flee. The next morning school is buzzing with the news of the hero; all anyone saw of him was his legs. Donovan sweats as police collect evidence, but soon the hero reveals himself-- Noah! He explains to Donovan that he is trying to protect him. Overnight, Noah becomes a star. Unused to popularity, he has no idea that he's becoming even worse than the jocks and A-listers who once bullied him. Donovan and Noah's friendship deteriorates, to the dismay of the robotics team at ASD, who still depend on them. Eventually it comes to light that Donovan was the hero, but regardless of what really happened with the propane truck, everyone is confident of one thing: there has never been anyone more un-super than Donovan Curtis.
