Audience: 5th Grade - 8th Grade
Cap Anderson was home-schooled on the Garland Farms commune until he began attending Claverage Middle School. He'd never seen TV, he'd never tasted pizza, but he does practice tai chi on the front lawn, and he knows how to tie-dye. When his grandmother is hospitalized Cap is sent to live with his new social worker. Smart but inexperienced, Cap earnestly takes on the coolest and the brightest as he adjusts to his new life. Cap is elected Class President as a prank, but slowly, the tables start to turn. Will Cap learn the name of all 1,100 students?
