Cover Art for SchooledSchooled by Gordan Korman

Capricorn Anderson, also known as Cap, has led a sheltered life and that is an understatement!  He has lived most of his life with just Rain, his grandmother, on a farm commune, where he has been home schooled.  His world is rocked when Rain falls out of a tree and breaks her hip.  Social services removes Cap from the commune and plants him in the real world.  That means living in a house that isn’t held together with duct tape and being inrolled in the local middle school.  Everyone knows being the new kid is tough, but what is the new kid has never watched television, seen an iPod or heard of Starbucks?  What if he only wears homemade shoes and tie-died t-shirts?  What happens?  Cap becomes the target of a diabolical plan devised by the most popular kid in school to elect Cap 8th grade class president and then torture him all year long!  How can anyone, least of all Cap, survive that?
