Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 4�8—Fonseca explains what it means to be labeled "gifted," how to cope in school, and how to interact with friends and family. Information is delivered in a friendly, conversational manner with firsthand advice from gifted kids and their parents. The myriad tips include how to deal with stress, how to complete homework assignments effectively, how to be respectful of others, how to accept oneself, and even how to deal with bullies. All are incredibly useful. In fact, the advice would be helpful for all kids. Slightly problematic are the few occasions when the author seemingly disparages non-gifted children. For example, in success secret #29, "Homework is not a race," the author remarks, "Your friends are bugging you to come out to play. They don't have the same diligence you do about your homework. They seldom get it done." The format is straightforward, and dialogue bubbles, quizzes, and text boxes lend visual interest. Noticeably missing is an index, but web and print resources are included. As long as our educational system attaches labels to children, this title will serve as a useful tool for those designated as "gifted."—Ragan O'Malley, Saint Ann's School, Brooklyn, NY
