    1. I recently read Sisters in Sanity, which is a YA novel that takes place in a sort of boot camp boarding school for troubled kids Early on, one of the characters says derisively that Red Rock the school doesn t take kids with serious problems it doesn t want the liability.I had mixed feelings about Sisters in Sanity, in large part because there wasn t a ton of nuance In What It Takes to Pull Me Through, though, we get a lot of nuance Better, it s nonfiction Better still, it s written by a journal [...]

    2. Some people like mysteries Others like the rush they get from horror novels, the kind for which Stephen King is famous Me I can t remember the last time I picked up a novel from either of these genres Why Because I get my kicks from worrying myself sick about the nightmarish hell certain to unfold as my sons hit adolescence I expected to love this book I did love this book for many reasons, most of which I expected The two reasons I liked it most, however, I didn t expect 1 After reading this bo [...]

    3. read this along w shouting at the skyey are both part of the same umbrella program Aspen Education i have actually read this book than once, which is unusual for me, and which should indicate how much i like it.

    4. A fascinating examination of a therapeutic boarding school in western Massachusetts called the Academy at Swift River The author spends four years getting to know the troubled teens who come to the school and the families who pay vast amounts to send them there The book focuses primarily on four teens who are part of peer group 23, a small group of students who go through the 14 month program together The author does a good job portraying the pressures and struggles faced by teens in contemporar [...]

    5. This is another well written book by David Marcus that has pulled me in by the strength of his narrative and the real life characters he is describing Excellent read with insights into different parenting styles and the choices kids make while they are growing up and grappling with their circumstances.

    6. As a counselor, this book was interesting on so many levels, and I am generally not a fan of non fiction The kids profiled were so real and difficult but you really understood them I found myself really wanting to get to the end and find out how they ended up doing in the real world.

    7. A really insightful account into four teenagers perspectives An an honest follow up after they complete the Swift River program It leads by mistake and example to help parents strengthen their relationships with their teens so that they can help them navigate their own lives.

    8. Interesting and compulsively readable book about the experiences of several teens at a therapeutic boarding school As a mental health professional, I m not sure about some of the therapy techniques used but I did find this book hard to put down.

    9. I enjoyed the book a great deal because I liked following the lives of a bunch of messed up teenagers I didn t really feel like I learned a lot that I can apply, however I would definitely recommend it for someone who was worrying about his her own teenager, though.

    10. I don t read nonfiction, but this was really thought provoking It s slightly dated now, but it s interesting insight into the troubled teens between my generation and the ones now I still believe in residential boot camp style programs for teens after reading this Maybe so in some ways.
