As someone who was told I was not college material, the lessons students reveal in this book are what I had to learn on my own over a longer period of time. This work is about the truth so many students discovered in their efforts to successfully get through high school. They leave a simple path for their peers to follow, yet as their stories reveal, it takes some courage and the willingness to make difficult choices. This is a great resource for students!

This book is Real, Relevant, and Reliable! I am thankful for how it will excel my working with teenagers as I plan to provide it to thousands of students! If you’re a student, this is a must read to help navigate life. Adults, this book will inspire you to help students persevere through trials!
