THE REAL HIGH SCHOOL HANDBOOK is just that: a guide to everything that a teen going into high school needs to know to survive and thrive.
The topics that this book cover include but are not limited to: credits and requirements, grades, test taking: SATs and ACTs, special education, extracurricular activities, how to juggle homework and employment, allying to college, and organizations that you can call when you need help. There are also quotes from students who did well in high school and also a few who wish they had worked harder.
Susan Abel Lieberman is a student mentor and has also written a few other self-help books.
This is a really insightful book and could be very useful for a nervous high school student. THE REAL HIGH SCHOOL HANDBOOK might be very motivating for a struggling student who thinks that school is a waste of time. There are many reasons given why you should work really hard in high school so that you can have a brighter future.
I picked up this book thinking it would be an easy, quick read. I was wrong. It is very relateable, and tells you all of the ups and downs to high school. It teaches you the fundamentals of having friends, how to calculate your GPA, the positives of graduating, and a lot more useful information to know about yourself, parents, teachers, high school, college, and LIFE! I recommend this book to anyone almost starting high school, in the middle of it, or almost graduating... It will make high school go by a lot smoother!!!
