Description
Gordon Korman's best-known bestseller! A quirky homeschooled kid must learn how to fit in (or stand out) at public school in this heartwarming fish-out-of-water classic.Capricorn Anderson had never watched a television show before. He'd never tasted a pizza. He had never even heard of a wedgie. And he had never, in his wildest dreams, thought of living anywhere but Garland Farm commune with his hippie caretaker, Rain.Capricorn (Cap for short) lived every day of his life on Garland Farm growing fruits and vegetables. He was homeschooled by Rain, the only person he knew in the world. Life was simple for Cap. But when Rain falls out of a tree while picking plums and is hospital-ridden, he has to attend the local middle school and live with his new guidance counselor and her irritable daughter. While Cap knew a lot about Zen Buddhism, no amount of formal education could ready him for the trials and tribulations of public middle school.Cap doesn't exactly fit in at Claverage Middle School (dubbed C Average by the kids). He has long, ungroomed hair, wears hemp clothes, and practices Tai Chi out on the lawn. His weirdness basically makes him the biggest nerd in school. This is great news for Zach Powers, big man on campus. He can't wait to instate the age-old tradition in C-Average School: The biggest nerd is nominated for class president — and wins. So when Cap becomes president, he is more puzzled than ever. But as Cap begins to take on his duties, the joke starts to turn on Zach.Will Cap turn out to be the greatest President in the history of C-Average School? Or the biggest punchline?

      • content: nathanj1205 - Capricorn Anderson had never watched a TV before, had only eaten home-grown food, had never used a lock or a locker, practices tai chi and non violence, and had never heard of a wedgie. I selected this book because I like funny books where the past and the present combine. This book is about a boy raised by his hippie grandmother on the Garland Farms commune. When his grandmother is hospitalized, he is sent to a real school for the first time in the 21st century. Some of my favorite parts are people's descriptions of Cap when they first meet him. “The instant I saw him standing there with all that hair and all those beads, I just knew. Garland Farm. It had to be. Nobody else looked like that. Nobody had looked like that since 1970.” “I looked at Capricorn Anderson, … about to step into a world that had forgotten the sixties except for J.F.K. and the Beatles.” “His clothes looked like pajamas – homemade pajamas. And his shoes were something out of a social studies project on the pioneer days. They were sandals woven out of cornhusks,...” The most exciting part of this novel is when Cap drives the school bus to the hospital. Both me and the main character, Cap, are in 8th grade and go to schools where bullying is an issue. This book helps you understand the side of the student being bullied in a humorous way. I highly recommend this book to anyone that likes funny twists on everyday life.

        Gr 6-9-Capricorn, 13, lives with his hippie grandmother on a farm commune. He's never been to school, never watched TV, and doesn't even own a phone. When Rain falls out of a tree while picking plums and is sent to rehab for several weeks, Cap stays with a social worker and is sent to the local junior high school. There he is introduced to iPods, cell phones, spit balls, and harassment. Cap, with his long frizzy hair, hemp shoes, and serene ignorance of everything most of the kids care about, is the dweebiest of the dweebs, and it's the custom at this school to elect such a kid to be eighth-grade class president (which offers extra humiliation opportunities). The story is told from multiple points of view, adding depth to even the most unsympathetic characters. Korman's humor is a mix of edgy and silly, the plot moves along at a steady pace, and the accessible and smooth writing style brings all the elements together to make a satisfying whole. The plot is not long on plausibility, but maybe that's not important in this case. Will Cap's ingrained peacefulness and sense of self win out in the end? Will it matter that he's entrusted with writing checks to help pay for the eighth-grade dance, even though he's not clear on the concept of what a check is? Readers will stay tuned to the last page, and Korman's many fans won't be disappointed."Lauralyn Persson, Wilmette Public Library, IL"

        Starred review from August 1, 2007
        Homeschooled on an isolated alternate farm commune that has dwindled since the 1960s to 2 members, 13-year-old Cap has always lived with his grandmother, Rain. When she is hospitalized, Cap is taken in by a social worker and sentlike a lamb to slaughterto middle school. Smart and capable, innocent and inexperienced (he learned to drive on the farm, but he has never watched television), long-haired Cap soon becomes the butt of pranks. He reacts in unexpected ways and, in the end, elevates those around him to higher ground. From chapter to chapter, the first-person narrative shifts among certain characters: Cap, a social worker (who takes him into her home), her daughter (who resents his presence there), an A-list bully, a Z-list victim, a popular girl, the school principal, and a football player (who unintentionally decks Cap twice in one day). Korman capably manages the shifting points of view of characters who begin by scorning or resenting Cap and end up on his side. From the eye-catching jacket art to the scene in which Cap says good-bye tohis 1,100 fellow students, individually and by name, this rewarding novel features an engaging main character and some memorable moments of comedy, tenderness, and reflection. Pair this with Jerry Spinellis 2000 Stargirl(the sequel is reviewed in this issue)for a discussion of the stifling effects of conformity within school culture or just read it for the fun of it.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2007, American Library Association.)
