Zen and the Art of Faking It | [Jordan Sonnenblick]

Zen and the Art of Faking It

When eighth-grader San Lee moves to a new town and a new school for the umpteenth time, he doesn't try to make new friends or be a loner or play cool. Instead he sits back and devises a plan to be totally different. When he accidentally answers too many questions in World History on Zen (only because he just had Ancient Religions two schools ago) all heads turn and San has his answer: he's a Zen Master.

Publisher's Summary

When eighth-grader San Lee moves to a new town and a new school for the umpteenth time, he doesn't try to make new friends or be a loner or play cool. Instead he sits back and devises a plan to be totally different.

When he accidentally answers too many questions in World History on Zen (only because he just had Ancient Religions two schools ago) all heads turn and San has his answer: he's a Zen Master. And just when he thinks everyone (including the cute girl he can't stop thinking about) is on to him, everyone believes him...in a major Zen way.

    "Wonderful"

    I have to say I loved this book. It was so great and well written. It may seem odd but I am in my late 30's and I got this book and just had to giggle and loved it. It is enjoyable for every generation and brought back the angst of junior high and trying to fit in and made me realize that it never really fades. The author does an incredible job telling a story and captivating the characters. I highly recommend this book to readers/listeners of all ages.

    "Great story and great message"
    What did you love best about Zen and the Art of Faking It?

    The story was good for young and old. This was a project for my 12 year old but, being the parent, I also enjoyed the book.


    What other book might you compare Zen and the Art of Faking It to and why?

    I don't know what book I would compare it to but it gave the message of being yourself and when you lie you will always get caught.


    Have you listened to any of Mike Chamberlain’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not listened to other performances by Mike Chamberlain but his narration was clear, easy to follow and understand and I would listen again.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    When everyone knows you're lying the only one you're fooling is you.


    Any additional comments?

    Great story for the whole family.
