Author Discussion & Signing with John Binder

John Binder has written a new and different book, The Girl Who Applied Everywhere. It's a young high school student's odyssey in search for the Perfect College to attend.

This is a dynamic and entertaining story following a group of friends as they apply for college. Applying to college is a rite of passage experienced by thousands of school students every year. For Sarah, a pupil at Oak Stream High School who wants to attend a top university, the task is a daunting one. She comes up with the highly unorthodox idea of applying to 101 colleges around the country. Readers will find themselves rooting for Sarah and her friends, Carrie and Rob, as she struggles to submit all her applications by the end-of-year deadline. But in the strange world of college admissions it becomes clear that acceptance decisions are based on all kinds of things beyond the applicant's academic ability. Because she is famous due to media coverage of her application odyssey, Sarah gets admitted by most of the schools she applied to. Then comes the really hard part, where to go? And herein lies the moral to this spirited and entertaining story.
