I love Gordon Korman Gordan Korman has brilliantly brought to life an unlikely hero in this book about a young man who enters school for the first time in his life

I love Gordon Korman. This book is a true, extreme fish-out-of-water tale of Capricorn Anderson, raised on a commune by his hippie grandmother, where he is homeschooled and, really, indoctrinated. When Rain (his grandmother) is injured, Cap spends six weeks at a publich middle school, where he is immediately elected class president- a dubious honor always given to the biggest loser. Gordan Korman has brilliantly brought to life an unlikely hero in this book about a young man who enters school for the first time in his life. He has been raised by his grandmother, a leftover hippi with definite ideas about right and wrong, and homeschooled on a ranch in the middle of nowhere.

Gordon Korman is the New York Times bestselling author of more than 75 books for kids and young adults. Each year, Gordon travels extensively, visiting schools, libraries and conferences, bringing his trademark humor and adventurous style to readers everywhere. His writing career began at the age of twelve when his seventh-grade English assignment became his first novel, which was then published while he was a freshman in high school.

Best Book About School Ever
How a hippie kid learns how to be in the real world

Capricorn has always lived in Garland with his grandmother Rain. When Rain falls out of a tree picking plums she gets injured and must go to the hospital. Of course, she can't drive so Cap has to drive her but then he gets caught and almost arrested on the way to the hospital. He is only 13! They make it to the hospital and Rain has a broken hip, so Cap must go to a public school and try to fit in while Rain gets better in the hospital. I would give this book an A because it had admirable characters and it went right into the plot action. Also, there was a lot of humor and a recurring message: even if you look weird you can still be a kind and loyal friend.

This is a great book because it has an admirable main character, Capricorn. "When the burning haze cleared my eyes, the first person I saw was Zach, untouched and laughing at me. Down at my feet lay Cap, out cold, his nose gushing blood like a geyser, (page 141)". This shows that Cap would sacrifice himself so there would not be a fight. Another admirable character is Ms. Donnely, Cap's foster mom. "My mother is the most generous, caring, good-hearted, sympathetic person in the world. She even chose a career devoted to helping people. She's a saint, (page 56)".

There was a lot of humor in the book. For example, the whole plot idea of a hippie kid trying to fit into a public school when he thinks the best tool ever is duct tape and doesn't even know what money is makes this book very entertaining and funny. One example of Capricorn not knowing about money is when he thinks you have unlimited money to spend just because you have a check. "I didn't have any money. But I had something even better – checks, which automatically counted as exactly as much money as you wrote in the box, (page 108)." Another funny thing is how different Capricorn's life is from most kids. "'Well, there was the time I whacked my head on the pump handle of our well. Doc Cafferty shaved part of my scalp so he could put in stitches.' (…)'Who's he? Your pediatrician?' 'No, the vet', (page 93)"

I also enjoyed how this book got right into the plot action. On the first very page Capricorn says "I was thirteen the first time I saw a police officer up close. He was arresting me for driving without a license, (page 3)". Then, a few pages later, Capricorn asks himself "How could an able-bodied teenager allow his grandmother to scale a plum tree? Simple. She wasn't my grandmother at the time. She was my teacher, (page 5)". That drew me in and me made me curious about if he was homeschooled or was just sick.

Overall, this was a suspenseful book that made me want to keep reading. My mom had been bugging me for a year to read it, and I'm glad I finally did. It gets right to the action, has admirable characters, and is hilarious.
Such a great novel. I read it at the request of my 11 year old son who said I would like it and he was so right. Such great life lessons and those above all--kindness.
Fantastic book for 5th grader - boy or girl. A sixth grade teacher friend recommended. My grand daughter says it is the best book she's read all year.
Happy to find a book about pre-teen issues that was not heavy handed, overly tragic, or depressing. Those were the type of stories our school had the kids read all year! Schooled was a welcome change. It hits all the marks and still leaves you smiling.
When Cap (Capricorn Anderson)'s Grandmother Rain, who has homeschooled him forever at Garland Farms, falls out of a tree Cap is forced to go to a regular middle school. Cap knows absolutely nothing about middle school, or anything else in the real world for that matter. Cap is a genuine "go with the flow" hippie. When Cap gets to school he is unfortunate to meet Zach, Lena, Darryl, and Naomi, who have "other" plans for him. Cap ia unwillingly made class president. He honestly has no idea what the heck is goinng on. Read it. Its really gopd.
This book presents an interesting scenario, not the typical homeschooled kid NOR homeschooling adult, which takes (or at least should take) the political-religious discussion out of the book's debate. A nice intellectual exercise in looking at the essential difference between both schooling approaches. Set at a middle school but easy to read for somewhat younger kids too. Reminded me a little of The Little Prince, in a much less poetic and abstract form, more in sink with contemporary American kids.
I can't believe it! I loved this book! The compassion, love, and determination? Absolutely outstanding! I had read this book a few years ago and remembered hating it, although reading it again has changed my opinions completely about the author and the story itself. I believe now after reading the book that I was thinking about another story. I love the connection shown between Cap and Miss Donelly, I recommend this book not only to those who need to read it for summer reading, of course. But also to those who want to read a story that really brings out the emotions of the characters.
An amazing eye opening book which reveals the cruelties of society in a easy to follow manner. Through several perspectives is the story of clueless hero who faces adversity with tai chi and non violence. Not your average school story but absolutely incredible. Norman really creates a moralistic but comedic story that is perfect for a history lesson. I would recommend it for summer reading or reading with family. Peace out!
