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. Download and start listening now!

    " I was reminded I hadn't read this book as I was compiling a list for a boy who is currently having a hard time finding things to read. It was the best thing I've read in a while. Adults writing for children, especially middle schoolers, often have a hard time sounding authentic. By far Sonneblick finest book I've read. Actually I'm puzzled why this book didn't win some Newbery award. It has all the requisite elements: the story is compelling, entertaining, and most importantly the character shows great self-awareness and growth. There were some great laugh out loud moments. This book is perfect for all middle schooler feeling on the fringe. (What teenager doesn't feel that way sometime?) "

    " My third favorite Sonnenblick novel (That's my "half-full" description, since I've only read three!) His writing style is interesting - funny, sarcastic, full of pop culture references, and an accurate middle schooler's POV (He previously taught middle level English). He is very good at mixing humor with very serious, deep, heartbreaking situations. "

    " Quite enjoyable young adult fiction. Probably won't be my vote for the YRCA, but it is the top two or three. "

    " This was a funny and insightful read. I think both boys and girls ages 12 and up would really enjoy it! "
