The Overachievers: The Secret Lives of Driven Kids

The Overachievers: The Secret Lives of Driven Kids - Alexandra Robbins Alexandra Robbins never disappoints. Yet again she mixes facts with true stories in a way that makes this story come to live.

The book circles around a bunch of kids that are currently or about to go to college. They are the type that have to get perfect grades and strive to be perfect at everything. Although I did not relate to the characters, I found them all interesting and couldn't wait to get to the next chapter with each one.

Robbins is also get at drawing attention to important causes. She very much made her point on the pressure schools and parents put on kids today.

Great read!
