Not that I didn't know this book would be good, just based on the topic and my previous great experiences with the author, but once it' over, I have to say I'm really happy. I feel vindicated, validated in my future career choice, inspired to get back to a novel idea I had, and generally happy that this book exists. The title is (awesome but) perhaps a little misleading, as it focuses more on quirk theory and how it functions IN high school than after it. It could use a sequel about college social grouping. Still, so, so good, and it should be required reading for teens and anyone who works with them or remembers what it was like to be one.
