Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Good Book I love how this book introduces us to a character who doesn't really try hard to fit in a social group. This book taught me that you just have to be yourself and you'll create a beautiful bond with new people

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Touching Book This book is so meaningful! It shows that being unique is wayyyyyy better than being normal. And I am very jealous of how the main character Cap (Capricorn) is very different and can do things many people cannot do. Overall this was an amazing book and you should definitely read it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great read for kids and adults! This book has the humour that I usually expect from a Gordon Korman book, and the story is told from a multitude of perspectives, which really adds to the story. This is a story of a kid who is out of place yet finds his place. It balances comedy with sweetness and life lessons that we all need to hear, regardless of age.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not to shabby The book is ok, not my favourite. The ending is very boring, just like a fairytale ending. Overall not a bad book and worth reading.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heartwarming and hilarious! Gordon Korman is always great, but this one was extra special to me. With all the humor of his past books but an extra measure of sweetness, this is the story of a boy who does not try to conform-for-the-sake-of-conforming to the world into which he is unceremoniously flung- instead, he shines the light of what he truly knows and is a fine example to everyone he meets. This story is about the ability of people to learn, adapt and live together, and how just one person really can make a difference. Even in a place as potentially harsh, close-minded and unforgiving as a high school. Read it- you'll laugh, cry and thoroughly love this story.
