My mother purchased this book for me in hopes it will get me into the colleges of my choice. I didn't expect a book to teach me how to write a proper essay, but I was very wrong. This book combines good sense with good humor in writing a proper college acceptance essay. The tips stuck with me while I wrote 2 essays. Hopefully my essays will shine above the others!
