She was only 14 months old when her mother was diagnosed with breast cancer. At 12, she lost her mother. She went on to score 2190 on SAT at first trial at age of 13, became the top girl in the "Readers' Digest Word Challenge Championship" in 2006 in the United States. She attended the St. Paul's School in New Hampshire and became the top student there. She was selected as one of the 141 "United States Presidential Scholars" in 2007 and received by President Omaba at the White House at age of 17. She continues to excel at the Stanford University... She is Adele F. Xu - an ordinary Chinese American girl with not so ordinary achievements. This194-page, full color-print book with several dozens of photos, majority in Chinese language was written by her father, a PhD technical manager currently working in China, for the purpose to share with readers some real stories about Adele from her birth until she was accepted by Stanford. The book is not a "Tiger Mom"-type book. Throughout the book, the father/author told the true stories that convene an opinion that parents should not impose their wish and preference on their child. Instead, they should be their child's friends, help to grow their talents and provide good environment for them to develop and excel. Those who read Chinese and are teenagers or young parents may find this a fascinating, beneficial and moving book. It also provided a few personal tips on how to apply for private boarding schools and colleagues in the States.
