Read - Reading: Schooled by Gordon Korman (Scholastic)
Homeschooled by his hippie grandmother, Capricorn (Cap) Anderson has never watched television, tasted a pizza, or even heard of a wedgie. But when his grandmother lands in the hospital, Cap is forced to move in with a school counselor and attend the local middle school. While Cap knows a lot about tie-dyeing and Zen Buddhism, no education could prepare him for the politics of public school.
The expected, but very moving ending.

This is definitely toward the top of my list of favorite Gordon Korman books. It’s a great high concept plotline with some fun twists. It gets across a great “let’s all get along message” without being too corny or on-the-nose.
