We are starting our first year homeschooling our daughter next week. I’m very excited!
My friend Quinn Cummings’ new book about homeschooling just came out, just in time for back to school. It’s called The Year of Learning Dangerously: Adventures in Homeschooling.
I’m almost as excited about this book as I am about homeschooling.

About Quinn Cummings
Quinn is a good friend of ours here in Los Angeles. Their family comes to our birthday parties and dinner parties and such.
We met a few years ago when my husband became friends with Don, Quinn’s husband. Don came to see Kate when she born in the hospital, helped us pack boxes when we were moving. He’s just that kind of guy.
Quinn’s very funny. Back when we used to have dinner parties (too busy these days), she was one of my favorite people to invite because she always kept everyone entertained. No surprise that she’s writing books now.
Child Actor Turned Homeschooling Mom
Quinn happens to be a child TV and movie star. She was on a show called Family that my sister and I watched religiously every week.
She was also nominated for an Oscar for her role in The Goodbye Girl, one of my favorite movies of all time.
My mom took me to see that movie in the theater — it was just her and me. I guess I must have been 9. I remember feeling so close to my mom watching that movie. It’s a movie about a mom and a daughter, and Quinn’s character, Lucy, is very precocious.
I remember how much I admired the Lucy character when I was a kid. Smart, wise-cracking, sophisticated. A lot like the real life Quinn.
Get the Book
Whether you’re brand new and nervous about homeschooling, or you’ve been doing homeschooling for 20 years, I think you’ll relate to this book.
I just ordered it on Kindle. I know it’s going to be one of those books I devour in a weekend.
I already started flipping through it and I can tell you already, it’s hilarious, heart-warming and encouraging. (I promise, I’ll write a review soon.)
