it was ok

This book centers on a rebellious thirteen-year-old boy who has been expelled from ever school in Rhode Island and even his grandfather wants to "get rid of him." Jake is sent to homeschooling with the Applewhite family where he participates in a production of The Sound of Music. Over time, his whole attitude and demeanor begins to change, mostly, I believe, because he was mainly accepted as he was by most of the Applewhites. I would use this book to talk about not judging others before we get to know them.
