They've got more nerve than me!
I agree - I thought she was a bit much at times. By the way, I meant she put her son in private school, not public school.
I thought this book was okay - but also thought I wasn't part of the target audience. A couple of the issues I had were she was pushing her son on the SAT because she couldn't afford college yet she put him in public school and spent a fortune on test prep. I got the idea she may have quit her job as well. I kept thinking she could pay for college if she spent her money more wisely. My other issue was the way she evaluated the programs she tried. The later programs benefited from her experiences with the earlier programs - she didn't unlearn what she had learned earlier. In the end, what I took from the book is that SAT scores really aren't indicative of much of anything.
The Mirror sounds like a lot of fun to me!

Hm, I might like this one since it's not dystopia.
I wish that spring would hurry up and get here.
I've never read any of Allen's books but I did go to a lunch for her. I think every other person there had read all of her books so I felt a little left out. I'm anxious to read this book so I can join "the club."
