by Jordan Sonnenblick

SCHOLASTIC INC | January 1, 2010 | Trade Paperback

Zen and the Art of Faking It is rated 4 out of 5 by 1.
Meet San Lee, a (sort of) innocent teenager, who moves against his will to a new town under mysterious circumstances. Things get interesting for him when he (sort of) invents a new past for himself, which makes him (sort of) popular. In fact, his whole school starts to (sort of) worship him, just because he (sort of) accidentally gave the impression that he''s a reincarnated mystic. When things start to unravel, San needs to find some real wisdom in a hurry. But can he patch things up with his family, save himself from bodily harm, stop being an outcast, and maybe even get the girl?

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great book for 12 and up! I really liked this book. Sun Lee has moved schools over and over. He never knew it was because his dad was a scam artist. Now that his Dad is in jail, and Sun's got no money, he is starting over again. When he gets to social studies class and finds out they are studying zen (which Sun studied at his last school) he decides a zen master might not be a bad new identity. No one knows that both his parents are white when he looks Chinese. Throw in a girl, an angry step-brother, a basketball team who gets zen master coaching and a soup kitchen, and you will have a great book. Normal sort of teen school issues, but an interesting look at the world of zen. Makes you think a lot more than the usual type of teen book. I look forward to reading his other books. I laughed aloud and learned stuff.

About the Author

Jordan Sonnenblick has always been fascinated by Zen Buddhism and the practice of meditation. However, he has never actually been able to meditate due to his well-documented lifelong inability to sit still or be quiet. He lives with his serene wife and two half-wiggly, half-calm kids in Pennsylvania.
