Making the Most of High School Success Secrets for Freshmen offers advice and practical strategies for middle school and freshmen in high school students. The book infuses anecdotes from real students about how to navigate the choppy waters of adolescence with humor and real-world instruction for how to get the most out of high school and beyond. I feel this book excels in raising confidence and providing a clear path to success. I also like the self-improvement portion of the book. I felt much more motivated to excel after reading it.
