          I think that this book is a GREAT book about school and that it can be very tough on new students. I honestly have went to many different schools in my lifetime and i sorta had a relation to this book

                I think the book is great. It talks about how a hippie connecting with the real world and how an adventure would form when the school bully pulls some stunts.

                  This book is about fitting in. When a hippie goes into the outside world, everything is different from what he's used to. This is a great book with drama and football!

                    This story is about a kid called Capricorn Anderson and his grandmother, Rain. They lived in Garland Farm, and they are hippie. One day, Rain broke her bone, and in Garland, there is only two of them, and Cap is homeschooled, so Cap drive Rain to hospital. While Rain is in recovery, Cap was assigned to a school called Claverage. This story will be about the school days of Cap. I like this book, my favorite part of the book is when everyone thinks Cap is cool, and everyone likes him, and Rain finally let Cap go to the real school.
