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 on Zen in World History (only because he just had Ancient Religions two schools ago), all heads turn. Now San has his answer: he’ll pretend to be a Zen Master. And just when he thinks everyone is onto him, including the cute girl he can’t stop thinking about, it turns out they all believe in him… in a major Zen way!
