An "entertaining, funny, and thoughtful" tale of three homeschooling families that "readers who enjoyed Tom Perrotta's Little Children will want to try" (Library Journal, Editor's Pick). Patterson, a straight-laced insurance adjuster who recently discovered both surfing and God, convinces his wife to homeschool their rambunctious twins. David is a liberal stay-at-home dad who feels stuck in suburbia and throws his energy into homeschoolong his three "ducklings." Wedding photographer Keith has just separated from Beth, a full-time mom struggling to manage her own private chaos. And there's Jennifer, Keith and Beth's precocious daughter, who copes with severe allergies and doesn't understand why she's not attending school and seeing friends like she used to. Will homeschooling provide balance and harmony for these families? Or will it bring unforeseen challenges and stress? In this "witty and insightful" debut novel, Suzanne Greenberg takes a serious look at the choices parents profess to make on behalf of their children, as well as the unpredictable ways in which new relationships can change our lives (Reader's Digest).
