    A real page-turner!

    Acceptance shows the real college application process and is incredibly accurate with all the details. After I started my college applications, I read this book and was surprised at how they described the college tours, how to apply to colleges, and the requirements you need to enter colleges. This book is incredibly witty, clever, and smart. Susan Coll does a very good job at describing what college is really all about. I recommend this book to any teenager in high school.

    A reviewer

    In her third novel, Acceptance, Susan Coll once again gives a master class in the deftest comedic story-telling. In a tale packed with wry observations and cringe-making set pieces, this is a comedy of the college admissions process that will give parents of younger children nightmares about what the future holds for them and their offspring. The applying kids Harry, Taylor and Maya are each carefully constructed characters with their own, not necessarily predictable, problems. From the broad range of parents, Grace is probably the nearest to the ¿everymom¿, valiantly trying not get swamped by the whole process. In counterbalance to these is the wonderfully cynical Olivia, who provides sober reflection on the entire education system which a lot of world-weary adults will recognize. In the hands of a lesser writer these characters might have come across as less than perfect, but in Coll¿s hands they take on a depth that adds pathos to the crackling humor. Definitely another novel by Coll to be savored and enjoyed.

    As a high school junior, I can relate!

    I just starting doing college tours during spring break and my mom got me this book to read while we traveled. I was amazed at how accurate most of the stuff regarding colleges was. I had just read the first chapter, regarding boring informational sessions at colleges and intense parents asking a million questions. At the first college I went to, it was exactly like that, which I thought was hilarious. Great for anyone, especially high schoolers worried about the imminent college decisions.
