In the summer of 2005, Maya Frost and her husband decided to sell everything and leave their suburban American lifestyle behind. The unusual part: they had four teenage daughters. While living abroad and shepherding their kids through high school and college, the Frosts stumbled upon a number of affordable, accessible, and stunningly advantageous strategies that "any" student can use to leap ahead of those on the traditional track.
This conspiratorial how-to handbook illustrates how blending meaningful study abroad with personalized learning gives students extraordinary opportunities to reach new heights. Readers will laugh out loud at the lunacy of the current college prep mind-set and celebrate the creative, low-cost options that are catapulting grinning students into the global economy "without a penny of debt,"
Packed with myth-busting facts, insider insights, astonishing success stories, and poignant tales from the daughters themselves, this inspiring romp is essential reading for anyone ready to say, "Good-bye, old school. Hello, bold school."
