The sofa folded out into a bed. Nobody tried to figure out anymore how Angeline knew all the stuff she knew, the stuff she knew before she was born. Instead, they called her a name. They called her a genius. How does she do it?
And that way, nobody ever had to really try to understand. She heard her father outside the apartment door. She bent the page in her book to mark her place and jumped up to greet him as he opened it.

Angeline hugged and kissed her father. I liked the way you smelled before better, she told him. She followed him into the kitchen and watched him cook dinner. Tomorrow, will you take me on the garbage truck with you? He sighed.
No, he said firmly. Besides, you have school tomorrow. Why does she always want to ride on that filthy truck? Abel wondered. He hated the garbage truck. The only reason he still worked at that stinking job was for Angeline, so that he could make enough money to send her to college someday.
Someday buy her a piano. Buy her nice clothes because someday she was going to be a famous scientist, or a concert pianist, or President of the United States. Someday, Angeline… he thought. Then can I ride in the garbage truck? Angeline was put in the sixth grade. They put her in Mrs.
She sat at the back of the room. She started to put her thumb in her mouth but caught herself. She was smart enough for the sixth grade.

All orders are dispatched as swiftly as possible! Buy with confidence! Nobody understands why Angeline is so smart. She could read the first time she picked up a book, she can play the piano without ever having had a lesson, and she even knows what the weather is going to be.
But being smart is causing Angeline nothing but trouble. The mean kids in school call her a freak, her teacher finds her troublesome, and even her own father doesn't know what to do with an eight-year-old girl who seems to be a genius.
