I think that Jordan Sonnenblick did a good job of expressing what would happen if one tells too many lies. Zen And The Art Of Faking It is a great book and I checked it out over and over again from the library because it was just so good.

San Lee is an eighth grader who is tired of constantly moving to new schools and towns.  Every time he moves to a new school and starts to make new friends, it’s time for him to move again. He doesn’t have many friends in this new school, however, when he answers a lot of questions about Zen in his class, people start thinking that he is a “Zen Master” when actually he had just taken an Asian History course in another school. And now everyone wants to be his friend and the cutest girl in school takes a fancy for San as well.

Will San’s secret be discovered? You’ll have to read to find out more… I definitely recommend this book.
