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? Download and start listening now!

    " I could have read this book for hours and hours if I didn't hsve to go to bed. I was lost in my book. This is about a girl who is trying to hid that she is a genius so she trys to fail on every test. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Audrey | 2/14/2014

    " this book was pretty easy. i get bored so i read my youger siblings books. my sister was reading this one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mick K | 2/13/2014

    " I liked this book because it was just like me. The reason it was just like me is because I would always worry when my report card would come, I knew that I was going to get grounded. I would recomend this book to anybody that likes to read about there own personal life and what things happen to them, like when there report card comes. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kristin | 2/12/2014

    " I liked this book, but I don't think it was quite as well thought out and inviting as some of his other books, like The School Story. It's an interesting idea though...a girl who keeps her genius intelligence a secret for the first ten years of her life because she wants to be normal. Also, thought-provoking about the way that grades and pressure to perform affects kids. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ivy | 1/31/2014

    " every andrew clements book we read is better than the last one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Featherheart | 1/28/2014

    " This is a really good book for being a second-grade read. It's funny to read about Nora and realize that I understand only part of what she's talking about. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susannah | 1/27/2014

    " Although this is a children's book, I really enjoyed reading it. I've never really liked the emphasis schools are placing on testing and how that affects the way our children view themselves and others. It sparked my desire to try and do something about this craziness that is overcoming the school system. All a test shows is a snapshot of about a week in the child's world. My children are much more than just some statistic and percentage. It's a great read and I'm going to encourage my children to read this as well. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tappyfeet | 1/15/2014

    " It sort of dragged on but it was pretty interesting. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jenny Lee | 12/26/2013

    " I don't think I've disliked a children's book more. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Car | 11/20/2013

    " I was frustrated with the girl's idea that she should just do mediocre work so she could be "normal". I thought she should have strived to do her best and shine. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alicia Jake | 11/14/2013

    " awesome i loved the characters! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kelly | 11/2/2013

    " anti-data-driven education (testing & test scores) message is so thinly veiled that the result is preachy and unapproachable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Monique | 10/30/2013

    " I thought it could have been more developed, especially at the end. It left me wondering, what happened? No explaination about something big, It's like it just faded away from existence! But a unique, amusing short story that Clements has the knack of always delivering. Awesome book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vicki | 8/30/2013

    " This book gives an interesting perspective on grades and standardized tests from the perspective of a 5th grader who is a genius, unbeknowns to everyone including her parents. I read it aloud to my son who likes Andrew Clement. He thought it deserved 4 stars. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nava Cullen | 8/22/2013

    " This was not the greatest book, but I still found it interesting to see everything through the eyes of someone like Nora (the main character), a genius. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 4/14/2013

    " The Report Card is probably my least favorite Andrew Clements novel yet. It contained a good message about the importance and disadvantages of grades and tests, but I just felt that the story was weak and I couldn't sympathize with the protagonist. "
