Review: The Perfect Score Project

I don't write these very often...probably because I don't complete an entire book very often.  And I have never, ever posted a list of the books I've read in an entire year because the list would be embarrassingly small.  But I just finished a book that I LOVED, and had to share it.  It's called "The Perfect Score Project" by Debbie Stier.  The author took the SAT a total of SEVEN times in one year!  She was trying to help her son navigate the SAT, and found the best way was to go through the learning process with him.  The book is half manual of what to do (and even more helpful:  what not to do) and the other half her own story of the emotional ups and downs of prepping for the test.  The funny thing is that I felt like I was reading a novel.  I loved it so much that I was looking forward to middle-of-the-night feedings with Chaim, just so I could read the book more!  And even though I have never skipped to the end of the book to find out how it ended, I had to with this book.  I had to know if Debbie found that "perfect score".  Don't worry...I won't spoil it for you.  But the book is about so much more than just the "perfect score"--it's about learning and building family relationships.  And for that reason, I'm writing this review.  Because I think if it's going to help a parent and teenager have a good experience together, it's worth sharing. 

Happy Reading!

BROOKE! I loved reading your posts! I haven't checked back in a while, so I was so happy to see the updates.

Chaim is a miracle!! Take your time back into running! You'll get there! Your body has been through A LOT!

I'm coming for a month this summer. Mid June to mid July. I'll email you with more details.

Love and miss you!

I'm a fan of any book that makes a middle of the night feeding easier in those early months. : ) Hope you find some more time for reading. And thank you, so much, for the kind words on my blog. xo

Wow, wish I had that book when I was up for night feedings. It must be good, I've never looked forward to those!!!
