“If you want to know what it’s like to be a homeschooled teenager, the best way to find out is to ask them. Sue Patterson asked 75 teens and young adults who were homeschooling or had graduated from homeschooling to describe their experiences, with the help of a 30-item questionnaire. This book is the result. It’s a well-organized compilation of the respondents’ answers to questions about their ways of learning, social lives, family relationships, hobbies, college experiences, careers, and more. I recommend it highly to anyone who is homeschooling, considering homeschooling, or curious about it.”

“Let’s hear it from the kids! There is finally a big enough generation of grown-up homeschooled kids that it is possible to see patterns and grasp the diversity in their experiences. And who better to tell us about all that than the kids themselves! So, Sue asked and they responded! And responded. And responded. Sue has done a fabulous job of sifting through and organizing a LOT of material so that we, the readers, can really learn and enjoy what these fascinating young people have to say about what it was like growing up without school. Read straight through or skip around to topics that especially interest you. Either way, you’ll find these young voices are fascinating and absorbing as they open a window for you to get a look into their unconventional lives. A great read. You’ll find it hard to put down.”
