SPECIAL THANKS to Barbara, our secret weapon!
Lots of love to David, Craig, Krista, and Ian for their patience and support, and Krista for her contribution.
We’d like to extend an enormous thank-you to our agent Joelle Delbourgo. And to the staff at Career Press for encouraging us to do a Revised Edition.
We’d also like to thank our colleagues who aided us enormously—either by reading, critiquing, or just plain listening. You are all brilliant, helpful, and kind. Thank you for your help, your conversation, and your friendship.
This book couldn’t exist without all of the students, parents, and guidance counselors we have had the privilege of serving throughout the years.
