1st ed.
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 to gawk at his brilliance. Suddenly, San has his answer: Meet San Lee, Zen Master. And just when he thinks everyone (including Woody, the cute girl he can't stop flirting with) is onto him, everyone believes a major Zen way.
