“Schooled,” by Gordan Korman

“Schooled,” by Gordan Korman is a humorous story about a young hippie in the modern world.

Book Cover of Schooled by Gordan KormanCapricorn Anderson has grown up on a farm commune, home schooled by his grandmother Rain. But when his grandmother falls out of a tree and breaks her hip she has to undergo therapy, and Capricorn can't stay on the commune by himself.

Capricorn has to live with a guidance counselor and her teenage daughter, attend the local high school and learn about the world outside the commune. Capricorn may be an expert on meditation, tie-dying, and tai chi, but he's clueless when it comes to iPods, pizza, and the other important elements of modern life.

“Schooled” made me laugh more than a few times. The main character Capricorn is humorous without being too ridiculous. Also Korman tells the story not only from Capricorn's point of view but also through the words of his classmates and other people around him. The resulting book is a very enjoyable and pleasant piece of entertainment.
