Review by: Todd Kettler, Roeper Review - April 11, 2007
Cross writes this book for a broad audience including counselors and parents of gifted kids. The value of this book is not limited to insights of one with tremendous experience on the topic but also includes the subtle suggestion that rather than chase the illusive list of characteristics and needs that distinguish gifted students, our field should spend more time studying the lived experiences of gifted kids and ask how can we work together to helo these kids develop into healthy and happy adults.
