What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

The side-splittingly funny Newbery Honor Book about a rebellious boy who is sent to a home-schooling program run by one family–the creative, kooky, loud, and loving Applewhites! Jake Semple is notorious. Rumor has it he managed to get kicked out of every school in Rhode Island, and actually burned the last one down to the ground. Only one place will take him now, and that’s a home school run by the Applewhites, a chaotic and hilarious family of artists: poet Lucille, theater director Randolph, dancer Cordelia, and dreamy Destiny. The only one who doesn’t fit the Applewhite mold is E.D.–a smart, sensible girl who immediately clashes with the defiant Jake.Jake thinks surviving this new school will be a breeze . . . but is he really as tough or as bad as he seems?—-Booklist (starred review)
