Capricorn Anderson has lived his whole life on a commune called Garland with his grandmother, Rain, who has home-schooled him. Yet their utopia of two is shattered when Rain breaks her hip and Cap is sent to live with a foster family - except it's the social worker herself who takes him in, as she was raised in Garland until she was twelve and understands that Cap's entry into the real world is going to be bumpy. (Her teenage daughter Sophie, on the other hand, is furious about their new, hippie housemate and his backyard tai chi.)

At Claverage (a.k.a. "C Average") middle school school, Cap is quickly elected eighth grade president - not because he's popular, but because there is a longstanding tradition of electing the biggest dweeb/nerd/dork to the position and laughing as they fail. Cap, however, doesn't fail: he earnestly sets about learning the names of his 1,100 new schoolmates, and begins planning the Halloween dance, despite having zero idea what a dance is or what planning entails.

Third person narration rotates between Cap, his classmates (Zach, Naomi, and Hugh), social worker Mrs. Donnelly, Sophie Donnelly, and the vice principal. Throughout, Cap remains calm and adheres to his principles of nonviolence, despite the often violent behavior he sees around him. Seeing his innocence, some students stop bullying him and begin to appreciate his worldview and '60s style. When Rain recovers and takes Cap back to Garland, it's partly a relief...but he also misses some of his classmates. Rain, realizing she isn't going to be around forever and Cap will need to learn to live in the real world, moves them to town so Cap can continue to go to school. The ending is a bit abrupt.

Quotes

"True, information isn't the same as experience." (Rain to Cap, 21)

"When you're unkind to others, it's usually because you don't believe that you, yourself, deserve kindness." (Cap to Mrs. Donnelly, 48)

Cap was weird, but there was more to it than that. There was something inside him that nobody else understood, something mysterious and strong. (Naomi, 66)

"Rain says you always know what you're doing when you're doing the right thing." (Cap, 75)

"I used to think change was a choice. That you could avoid it if you stuck with your convictions. Now I just don't know." (Rain to Cap, 203) ( )

Schooled highlights the misadventures of Cap as he enters public school after being homeschooled in a very small commune. It's a somewhat unfortunate portrayal of homeschooled kids, if this is the only perspective one sees. My kids are homeschooled and they can handle money, understand the civil process, and are more than capable of holding their own in relationships with both peers and adults. Having said that, it's an entertaining look at the pitfalls of middle school relationships, and the idea of dropping a kid into it who has no filters and / or tools to deal with them is an interesting proposition, even if it means you have to constantly suspend your disbelief. My kids won't be reading it soon, mostly due to crass language, but I'm not sorry I did.

I loved this so much! It's a warm, feel-good novel somewhat in the vein of Spinelli's Stargirl, or the movie "Blast From the Past."
Eighth-grader Capricorn Anderson has lived his entire life on an isolated hippie farm commune, and that's all he knows. But he's only lived there with his grandmother... the commune's founder... because everyone else left the commune by the mid 1970s. Since the book is set in the first decade of the 21st century, Cap, as he becomes known, doesn't know how the real world even functions.
When his grandmother falls out of a tree and has to go tot he hospital and recover in a rehab facility for two months, Cap is thrown into the chaos of middle school. And this particular middle school has a dreadful tradition: the most nerdy, dweeby, outcast kid in the 8th grade is unanimously elected class president, and then the students, led by the popular bullies, make that kid's life miserable.
But no matter what anyone tries to do to Cap, he doesn't take it the way they expect him to, and soon, kids start to actually like this weird kid who seems to have time traveled from the 1960s.
Each chapter is told in first person from multiple narrators, and it's easy to follow. I think there were eight different narrators, but the reader never forgets who is telling this portion of the story. There are many little plot twists, a lot of humor, and it's just a fun, sweet, feel-good tale. ( )
