Unexceptional children are the country’s only hope in this kickoff to a smart, funny spy adventure series.

Are you average? Normal? Forgettable? If so, the League of Unexceptional Children is for you! This first book in a hilarious new adventure series is for anyone who’s struggled to be noticed in a sea of above-average overachievers.

What is the League of Unexceptional Children? I’m glad you asked. You didn’t ask? Well, you would have eventually, and I hate to waste time. The League of Unexceptional Children is a covert network that uses the nation’s most average, normal, and utterly unexceptional children as spies. Why the average kids? Why not the brainiacs? Or the beauty queens? Or the jocks? It’s simple: People remember them. But not the unexceptionals. They are the forgotten ones. Until now!

Quotes & Awards

  • This...amusing chapter book goes down easy. Even with the fate of the world resting on their 'slightly hunched' shoulders, the main characters are so disarmingly upfront about their inadequacies that they'll definitely have readers on their side. Booklist
  • Keeps readers giggling. SLJ
  • It will hook readers and have them anxiously awaiting the next adventure. School Library Connection
  • Daneshvari recognizes that far more powerful than a dork becoming cool is the ignored finally being heard, the invisible seen. Here's hoping we will be witnessing much more of Jonathan and Shelley's kind of transformation, on the page and in life. The New York Times
  • Delivers hilarious shenanigans...This humorous new series is sure to appeal to fans of Daneshvari and other lovers of the ludicrous. Kirkus
  • Pokes sly fun at the pressure to raise future valedictorians and CEOs, by turning the tables on the classic trope of an average kid discovering greatness...Daneshvari's fast-paced, twisty story is chock-full of clever humor. Publishers Weekly
  • “Daneshvari delivers hilarious shenanigans…This humorous new series is sure to appeal to fans of Daneshvari and other lovers of the ludicrous.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “Daneshvari’s fast-paced, twisty story is chock-full of clever humor.”
