Fifth grader Nora Rose Rowley is really a genius.
It's true.
But don't tell anyone.
Nora always gets average grades so she can forgo the pressure-cooker gifted program or Brainiac Academy.
But when Nora gets one hundred percent fed up over testing and the fuss everyone makes about grades, she brings home a terrible report card just to prove a point.
Pretty soon her teachers, parents, and the principal are launching a massive effort to find out what's wrong. Can Nora convince them that tests alone are a stupid way to measure intelligence?

‘The Report Card’ is a book that I enjoy revisiting. Nora is a profoundly gifted child who has kept her genius a secret. While that is the premise of the novel, as an adult I can see more than when I first read it.

The story reminds me that, no matter how smart you are, you can still make mistakes. Nora is a genius, yes, but even she admits that she has made her fair share of mistakes. This book revolves around one of her mistakes, following from what she thinks is the perfect plan to the fallout from the disaster it turns out to be.

Nora is smart, but human. I would recommend this book to kids of all ages as the message that labels such as smart or dumb can’t really be trusted is one that children, and even those who are not children, need to hear.
