Description

The Perfect Score Project is an indispensable guide to acing the SAT - as well as the affecting story of a single mom¿s quest to light a fire under her teenage son. It all began as an attempt by Debbie Stier to help her high-school age son, Ethan, who would shortly be studying for the SAT.
