The Smartest Kids in the World
And How They Got That WayAudiobook CD - 2013
What is it like to be a child in the world's new education superpowers? Amanda Ripley follows three Americans embedded in these countries for one year. Kim, fifteen, raises $10,000 so she can move from Oklahoma to Finland; Eric, eighteen, exchanges a high-achieving Minnesota suburb for a booming city in South Korea; and Tom, seventeen, leaves a historic Pennsylvania village for Poland. Their stories reveal a pattern of startling transformation.
