A great novel by Canadian author, Gordon Korman! Your older kids will be hooked!
”CAP was beginning to rile me. ‘Of course it’s empty. It’s your locker. It’s empty until you put something in it.’
’What do I have to put in there?’ he demanded.
’How should I know? It’s your stuff.’
’When we lock things away,’ he said with conviction, ‘we’re really imprisoning ourselves.’
Now, that was definitely something you didn’t hear every day. ‘What school did you go to before this?’
’I’m homeschooled,’ he informed me.
‘I’m only here because Rain broke her hip, and they won’t let me live alone at the community.’
Hugh Winkleman, you’re a lucky man. With the arrival of this new kid, all the losers in the school were bumped down one space. Never before had anyone screamed for the job of eight grade president like Capricorn Anderson”
