Book twenty-nine: Orbiting Jupiter by Gary D. Schmidt

An eighth grader becomes a father. He is removed from his abusive father and sent to live on an organic farm with foster parents and their younger son.

The boys go to school. Almost everyone judges the boy, including the teachers.

Schmidt does an excellent job of building the story but, I'm not going to lie, the ending is a bit rough. That's all I can say.

29 down plus 23 to go.
