The Night Before College : Sonya Sones, author of YA novel What My Mother Doesn't Know, has written a nifty, witty take-off of The Night Before Christmas with her daughter Ava Tramer, a recent Harvard grad. This small-format jacketed hardcover takes a look back at all the stops on the route to college - touring campuses, prepping for SATs, writing the dreaded essay, getting the thumbs-up or -down news, and finally, at long last, packing and setting off for the next chapter. A perfect gift for the college bound. NOTE: This is a Scratch and Dent book and may have noticeable dents, scratches and various other cosmetic issues as well as torn or missing dust jacket.
