"As an individual who works with students transitioning to college, I can say Jennifer Sullivan hit it out of the park with this terrific resource for students and families. I often find books on college to be overwhelming and Jennifer Sullivan has managed to create an easy read which packs information into every page."

"Jennifer Sullivan truly is a partner with families and students throughout the book. The reader feels as though she is with you and explaining each step of the journey to college on each and every page."

"This is a topic that has been missing from our conversations as transitions and planning for these transitions can often be overwhelming for families...Ms. Sullivan's work and concern for this population is evident in this book."

"In particular I found the set-up of the book makes it a more useful tool than others I've seen - each tip is short, with practical implementation - and it doesn't require reading the whole book to be useful."
