Please, please don't subject your gifted kids to this book, especially if they are into FLL or FIRST robotics. The characters, setting, and even plot are so offensive my robotics-obsessed, gifted middle schooler ditched the book a third of the way in. He's asked me twice if that's what "real" people think of he and his friends. Sadly son, yes. And that's why this author is a best seller -- he appeals to the kids who have to be bribed to read books. My frustration lies in the fact that his story would have improved with real kids and an accurate portrayal of robotics. The fantasy world he created worked against his theme and plot.
That being said, the characters did come off as a little stereotypical, particularly the female students and teachers. Katie was probably the best written of the four female points of view that are offered, though her development seemed quite fast considering the time frame of the book. The girl students, while intelligent and driven, relied a little heavily on the archetypes of "pretty potential love interest" and "pushy and self-interested." More could have been done to make these girls even half as relatable and interesting as Noah, who is probably the most developed character.
