If I'm So Smart, Why Aren't the Answers Easy?
Based on surveys with more than 5,000 gifted young adults, If I'm So Smart, Why Aren't the Answers Easy? sheds light on the day-to-day experiences of those growing up gifted. In their own enlightening words, teens share their experiences with giftedness, including friendships and fitting in with peers, school struggles and successes, and worries about the future. By allowing teens to share their real-life stories, the book gives readers a self-study guide to the successes and pitfalls of being gifted in a world not always open to their unique and diverse needs. Teens will be able to reflect on their own experiences through the engaging journal prompts included in the book, and their parents and teachers will enjoy hearing directly from other students about the topics gifted teens face daily.
With plenty of wise advice and wisdom throughout, If I'm So Smart, Why Aren't the Answers Easy?, is a strong pick for education and self-help collections for teens.,James A. Cox,Midwest Book Review, 11/15/12
