By Tina L. Quick
Summertime Publishing
Foreword by Ruth Van Reken, co-author of Third Culture Kids: Growing Up Among Worlds

A practical and inspiring handbook for students who must make the double transition of not only adjusting to a new life stage as an independent adult, but to a whole new culture as well, for even their home culture will be foreign to them in many respects.

"This bookis uniquely and sensitively tailored to the needs of students who are either 'returning' to their home countries or 'transitioning' to another host country. The sensitive observation shines through, and will resonate with the experience of the folk who are going through it today. There is also a wealth of wise and balanced qualifications, leaving room for the great variety of individual experience. It is realistic without being fatalistic; it should help a generation of students to make the very best of their college careers."
