"Schooled" by Gordon Korman

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐✰

Capricorn Anderson has spent his whole life living in a hippy commune called Garland but when his caretaker Rain breaks her hip he is placed with a foster family while she heals and gets his first taste of society - middle school style. I read this book with my 11 year old daughter who was reading it for school and we both enjoyed it very much. It was endearing and funny. The "cool kids" at school attempted to pick on Cap but he lives by his own rules and the things they do never get to him. Instead the other kids start to see Cap's down-to-earth style and laid back attitude as being pretty cool.
