Teens looking forward to college need all the information they can get. Cohen's book, though directed to top students, comes first in the scheme of college planning. The founder of her own counseling service (which she often refers to in her text), Cohen deconstructs, then reconstructs the applications of three real Ivy-League-college-bound kids, working in enough about their backgrounds to give context to the advice she provides on recommendations, the "brag" sheet, essays, etc. Stephanie ZvirinCopyright © American Library Association.
