In this honest and wry memoir, popular blogger, author, and former child actor Quinn Cummings recounts her family's decision to wade into the unfamiliar waters of homeschooling - the fastest-growing educational trend of our time - despite a chronic lack of discipline, some major gaps in academic knowledge, and a serious case of math aversion. (And that's just Quinn.) Quinn's fearless quest includes some self-homeschooling - reading up on education reform, debating the need for "socialization," and infiltrating conferences filled with Radical Unschoolers as well as Christian fundamentalists (and even chaperoning a homeschool prom). Part personal narrative, part social commentary, and part how-not-to guide, The Year of Learning Dangerously will make you laugh and make you think. And there may or may not be a quiz at the end. OK, there's no quiz. Probably.
