With college admission scandals making headlines, Paul Tough (The Years That Matter Most), the bestselling author of How Children Succeed, tells the stories of students trying to find their way, with hope, joy, and frustration, through the application process and into college. Drawing on new research, he reveals how the landscape of higher education has shifted in recent decades and exposes the hidden truths of how the system works—and whom it works for.
