Description:

In America today, high school students are under more pressure to succeed than ever before.& nbsp; In this groundbreaking exploration of the ever-intensifying culture of overachievement, Alexandra Robbins goes behind the scenes to explore every aspect of the teen overacheiver??'s life, from dramatically unfair high school admissions processes to the high-stakes game of college admissions.& nbsp; With an emphasis on the competition, cheating, grade inflation, parental pressure, coaching and prep that are now considered normal parts of teenage life in middle class and privileged communities, Robbins explores the consequences of the pressure to achieve, including addiction and depression.& nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; Of-the-moment, thoroughly investigated and compellingly reported in Robbins??'s signature style, this will be a must-read for anyone who knows or is a high-achieving teen.& nbsp;
