"Lesson Plans is a captivating and funny novel centered on the lives of three families, each of which has chosen to homeschool for a different reason. Suzanne Greenberg weaves her tale through the perspective of four characters: Patterson, a Christian surfer; David, an empathetic liberal stay-at-home dad who feels stuck in suburbia; Beth, a full-time mom at loose ends; and Beth's six-year-old daughter, Jennifer. As their stories progress and their lives intertwine, each family's challenges loom larger. In a highly entertaining way, Lesson Plans takes a serious look at the choices parents profess to make on behalf of their children.Suzanne Greenberg is a professor of English and creative writing at California State University Long Beach. Her fiction, poetry, and essays have appeared in numerous journals, including the Mississippi Review, West Branch, and the Washington Post Magazine.
