Publisher Description

“...part Gossip Girl, part Dead Poets Society, and entirely addictive! A brilliant, satirical peek at the families of privilege behind the Ivy Curtain, this book made me laugh out loud.” — Kevin Kwan, New York Times bestselling author of the Crazy Rich Asians trilogy

In Early Decision, Lacy Crawford draws on 15 years of experience traveling the United States as a highly sought-after private college counselor to illuminate the madness of parents pursuing college admissions.

Working one-on-one with helicopter parents and burned-out kids, Anne “the application whisperer” can make Harvard, Princeton, and Stanford a reality. Early Decision follows five students over one autumn as Anne helps them craft their college essays, cram for the SATs, and perfect the Common Application. It seems their entire future is on the line—and it is. Though not because of Princeton and Yale. It’s because the process, warped as it is by money, connections, competition, and parental mania, threatens to crush their independence just as adulthood begins.

Whether you want to get in or just get out, with wit and heart, Early Decision explodes the secrets and scandals of the college admissions race.

Disappointing

I really wanted to like this book. It seemed like it would be funny, informative and entertaining. In truth it is none of the above. This is less of a book about kids trying to get in to stellar schools and more about the author's own insecurities and neuroses. Too bad. There's obviously talent there. It's just obscured with the author's need to impress readers with how brilliant she is - as she references her own ivy- league education on practically every page; exhausting and totally lacks focus.
