Publisher's Summary

Popular author Gordon Korman pens a funny fish-out-of-water tale that even the most reluctant reader will find impossible to resist. Capricorn Anderson has spent his entire life on a farm with his hippie grandmother. After an accident puts Grandma in the hospital, Cap is forced to attend Claverage Middle School and live with his guidance counselor. The tradition at Claverage is for students to nominate the biggest nerd for class president, and Cap is the obvious choice. But with his odd ways and positive outlook, Cap just might turn the joke upside down by becoming the best class president ever.

won't be able to stop listening

My 12 year old daughter listened to this book she loved it. I couldn't get her to stop listening to it. She has short term memory loss and it is very hard for her to remember things but she listened to this book and told me and her teachers all about it and she only had to listen to it once which is a first. I also listened to it it was great .

I am a little disappointed with the audiobook for this title. I use this audiobook to work with struggling readers, but the pauses between every sentence are unnaturally long. Because of the pauses, it seems to take forever to labor through a chapter. I have a hard time coaxing my students not to read ahead of the audio.
