I recently finished Orbiting Jupiter by Gary Schmidt. This book is amazing! Gary Schmidt writes with such heart. The story is about a family who has one son in sixth grade. They decide to take in an eighth grader as a foster child...he comes from a rough background and has been in trouble a lot. This story beautifully shows how love can change a family, a boy, a principal and a community. I give this book five out of five stars!
