Rivero's book makes sure that any teen who needs the advice and support of a caring, understanding adult can find it. By putting into print what all gifted teens come to realize - that their life experiences are qualitatively different from the norm - Rivero allows intense teens to start to understand and accept their differences.
The book offers caring support, advice, and ideas for gifted teens. It addresses the great variety of questions that teens will have, from school to sexuality to dealing with parents, with clear advice and helpful ideas. I recommended this book highly in my book for gifted homeschoolers, From School to Homeschool: Should You Homeschool Your Gifted Child?, and I recommend it to anyone who has an intense, sensitive teen in their lives.
