Ann HulbertFoley…has found a clever conceit in the cultural obsession with above-averageness. But her readers, ages 8 to 12, will thank her for not straining to impress with an ambitious satire of the smugly brilliant. Nor does she aspire to heavy moralizing about the virtues of ordinariness. Instead, she sets herself the more modest goal of showing how even a self-proclaimed former nobody can dream up a lot of outlandish entertainment.
