When I read this after college I felt like I was being transported back to high school Not only did I know the kinds of kids she was describing I WAS one of those kids As a somewhat adult it s hard to imagine how I could ever pull off everything I did in high school now I can barely make it through the workday sometimes how did I go to school do homework work at my job and play competitive sports and not simply die of exhaustion The thought makes me crazyThis was a great read for someone who had been there but I also would recommend it to anyone considering having kids or working in the school system It gives great insight to the difference between motivation and pressure and reminds you of what it s really like to be back in high school
