Oh, the evils of standardised testing. This book begins when George, young genius, gets a letter telling him that he has been accepted into the Whittaker Magnet School, which has the best standardised test scores in the country. Kate, his niece who is two years older than him is also accepted, because suddenly the school district has 'octopused' to take in their duplex house. When they reach the school they find a place of green children, anonymous teachers and quite possibly a demon.

I really enjoyed this book, though at times it seemed a little patchy.
