"The Prodigy" is a short story of around 7,000 words. Set in the postwar, mid-1950s era, it's the story of a boy named Jordy who faced frustrating challenges, especially at school, because he was gifted with "prodigious" intelligence and intense curiosity. These qualities often made Jordy feel, look, and act differently from other kids. That attracted unwanted attention, sometimes in ways that caused trouble.
All Jordy wanted was to learn and write about the things that fascinated him in the world. Along the way, he faced physical dangers, temptations, difficult people, helpful people, and some satisfaction.
But would he ever find his rightful place in the world? Read the story now to follow Jordy's adventures and discover how it all went.
