    What happens when a teacher ends a love affair with his student? She goes batshit crazy But not in a way that's at all interesting or entertaining or even particularly sympathetic

    I'm sorry I try to avoid saying it when I can but this book was terrible Completely disappointing because at the beginning I thought it had a lot of potential but it was completely rushed and unbelievable and at the end completely crazyPoints of interest1 The writing style from the beginning was odd It felt very unfinished and even frantic when what we needed was some sort of clarity I'm not sure it was smart to start in the m

    Maybe I am just too old but I really didn't like this book at all I force myself to read all the way to the end of any book I start because I feel like you really never know but at the end of this book I just wished I had a time machine to go back before I bought it I think that yes obviously when you write a book it is going to reflect your personally somewhat but while I was reading this book I couldn't help but feeling like the aut

    Last night when I was finishedI thought maybe 2 or 3 stars but the it sits with me the I find myself thinking about it All I do know is that the writers words are the bulk of this 4 stars The heartbreak and complete unraveling of Nine made me ache Did I think a seventeen year old would have much of this dialogue with themselves?

    Novels about teacherstudent affairs always both repulse intrigue me especially YA novels The first one I read was Gone by Kathleen Jeffrie Johnson about a post graduation summer fling between a male senior and his pretty young former teacher The story was crushingly sad overtly sexual it had an overall half baked feeling to it unable to compensate for such a disturbing depressing story with stellar writing Teach Me reverses the genders sets the story during the scho

    Every once in awhile I allow myself the luxury of writing a short review This is one of those timesRA Nelson's Teach Me starts out smarter than the YA level that it seems hellbent on lowering itself to Nelson does an excellent job at the outset capturing the mindset of a nerdy gawky high school girl who has fallen in love with her English teacher The book seems credible up to and slightly beyond the point where the affair is consummated but then becomes annoying in the second half
