Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
For a substantial segment of today's teens, overachieving is a requirement for the goal of being accepted into a top, elite university. Bestselling author Alexandra Robbins returns to her school ten years after leaving to see what, if anything, has changed. What she found fills this truly eye-opening and groundbreaking book: the intense stress, the cheating, the parental pressure, the study drugs and the cutthroat university admissions process. Weaves heart-rending stories of eight students with incisive investigative journalism.
