"In a world where 'homeschooling' is so often misunderstood, discounted, and even ridiculed, Laura Brodie offers a clear-eyed view and makes a valuable contribution to the literature on the subject. This is necessary reading for anyone with an interest not just in homeschooling but in education generally."
-- David Guterson

"As a parent involved in homeschooling, I highly recommend this book. It's timely, beautifully written, and must reading for anyone who has ever wondered what homeschooling is all about."
-- James Grippando, author of Money to Burn

Humorous and heartfelt, this charming memoir tells of a year-long experiment in homeschooling in which the author decides to give her ten-year-old daughter a sabbatical from homework hell and the vicissitudes of one-size fits all traditional public school days.

This book was very inspiring for me as a parent who is thinking about homeschooling and wants to do what is right for my child. The author is very honest and talks about the failures as well as the successes in the year of homeschooling with her oldest daughter.
