Zen and the Art of Faking It

Author: Jordan Sonnenblick
Review Writer: Book Girl
San Lee is the poster child for faking things. When he and his slightly crazy dad (who turns out to be a fellon) move from town to town, his dad always encourages him to do whatever he can to fit in. At his new school in Pennsylvania, after answering questions on Zen for a Social Studies teacher, his class starts thinking that he is some Zen master. Going on with his dad's instructions, he assumes a Zen identity, which fits, because he and his mom don't really have much money. However, the Zen master guise starts spiraling out of control when he meets Woody, a unique girl who really likes San because he is so Zen. Will he be able to keep his identity? And at what cost?
