After years of watching her eldest daughter, Julia, struggle in a highly regimented public school system, Laura Brodie was determined to teach her ten-year-old at home for a year. Although friends were skeptical and her husband predicted disaster, Brodie had visions of one ideal year of learning. But can one year of homeschooling make a difference? And what happens to the love between mother and daughter when fractions and spelling enter the relationship? One Good Year is a funny and inspiring story of human foibles and human potential, in which love, anger, and hope mingle with reading, math, and American history.
