This book offers a revealing -- and troubling -- view of today's high school students and the ways they pursue high grades and success. Veteran teacher Denise Pope follows five highly regarded students through a school year and discovers that these young people believe getting ahead requires manipulating the system, scheming, lying, and cheating. Named by American School Board Journal as a Notable Book in Education.
