McNaughton Collection -- Book Feature

A few weeks ago, I wrote a blog describing the new collection of books that arrived recently at the CSU Library. The CSU Library is one of many libraries across the nation to host the McNaughton Collection which is a compilation of current popular hardcover books.

For the month of April, I would like to highlight the book “Acceptance” by award-winning journalist David L. Marcus. The book tells the story of an experienced counselor, Gweyth “Smitty” Smith, who helps seven very different high school kids figure out what is best for each of them as they contemplate entering the world of college. “Acceptance” discusses a variety of students -- the jock, the free spirit, the valedictorian, etc. It also covers a variety of obstacles facing college students.

For many CSU students, this may be their final semester before graduation. Though the book's characters are high school students, their stories and obstacles will resonate with the college student. As a college student myself, like the characters in the book, I must decide what's next for my life -- graduate school, career, marriage, etc.
