    I agree, this book is rather pretentious sounding and makes gifted people seem superhuman and better than the rest of society. But it also had some good advice and info.

    It is a little hard for me to read non-fiction but this book was kind of worth it. It's about the life of a gifted teenager and how their brains work differently. It talks about topics ranging from the way our brain is forming, to IQ and EQ, to college and the future, to relationships and even the meaning of life. All these topics are extremely relevant to my life, and I was able to resolve a lot of the problems that I constantly find myself thinking about.

    I was surprised, but I finished the entire thing cover to cover. Yes! This book was checked out from the library as sort of a joke, as a have always been put into "gifted classes" and considered "really smart" by peers and parents.

    Read this slowly over a year. Tons of good stuff. Lots of quotes and essays from teens. Plenty of info about college, gap years, which I needed. Covers just about every topic EXCEPT drug abuse, which is too bad. I was a little uncomfortable with how sexuality and suicide were approached at times.

    Great resource for gifted students in grades 6-12. Gives practical advice and is written in an easy to read format. Students could just read chapters that discuss issues important to them or read the book from cover to cover.
