I've found a future book club author...
14-year-old Jacobi Copeland (back row, second from right), a student at the Ron Clark Academy in Atlanta, which gives kids the drive to thrive. When Jacobi and his classmates came to O for a visit and a Skype session with Oprah, he said: "I've seen the power of they can inspire people to do amazing things...and keep them hopeful no matter what stands in their way." He left all of us wishing we could go to Mr. Clark's school.
