REVIEW OF FISH OUT OF WATER BY ABBY NYE
I especially liked the part when her professor gave Abby a low mark on a paper because he disagreed with her viewpoint because she had written about her Christian views on the subject. He had said that they should write from their own viewpoint. She was upset about the grade and pursued it further. She never did get a better grade, but the professor viewed her differently in the future.
I asked my mother about her experiences in college. My mother attended a Catholic college and she does not remember having the same issues that Abby faced. I feel that this book would be very useful when entering college. I am aware that the information discussed is based on the opinions of the author and some people may not agree with her ideas. I am presently in high school and I will pass this book on to one of my Christian friends who is attending college in the fall. This was an impressive book. Although the book was written in 2005, the information is still very useful. Very good job Abby!
I received a copy of this book from New Leaf Press to review and did not receive any compensation for the review.
