This book is written specifically for GTs (gifted and talented) to help them in their everyday life as a GT in school, at home, and with friends. It is based on surveys of more than 1,000 gifted kids who had lots to say about growing up gifted and dealing with it. Their advice and insights will help all GTs know they are not alone and not weird - and that being smart, creative, and talented is a big plus, not a minus.
