Fishman-Weaver's feminist participatory action research (PAR) with gifted young women gives voice and context to the emotional stressors they identify, and suggests a framework for incorporating school-based interventions that derive from the women's lived experiences. Her account is highly engaging and provides an accessible tool for educators and students., Shoshana D. Kerewksy, Teachers College Record, 5/24/19
This book is more than just a guidebook. It is multiple stories of self-exploration artfully connected to give the reader ideas for helping others while also promoting self-reflection. It connects with the topics and issues in just about every book on gifted education out there and would be an exceptional tool to add to your collection., L. Kathleen Casper, Advanced Development Journal, 10/1/20
With detailed journal entries from each of the participants--as well as Dr. Fishman-Weaver--readers get insight into the lives of these gifted young women. This book makes an excellent study for educators to reflect on how they are supporting students who often get overlooked because they appear to have everything together., Molly Dettmann, Voice of Youth Advocates, 1/1/21
