But there is one bright spot: Mark Connelly, her very cute, very off-limits 28-year-old calculus teacher. She falls hard for him--a ridiculous schoolgirl crush headed nowhere. She can't help it. He's the only good thing at Crestview High. She doesn't expect him to reciprocate her feelings. How inappropriate, right? But he does. And he shows her.
And that's when her life goes from bad to good.
About the Author: S. Walden used to teach English before making the best decision of her life by becoming a full-time writer. She lives in Georgia with her very supportive husband who prefers physics textbooks over fiction and has a difficult time understanding why her characters must have personality flaws. She is wary of small children, so she has a Westie instead. She is the USA Today bestselling author of Going Under. When she's not writing, she's thinking about it.
This book adresses everything taboo. Bullying, inappropriate student teacher relationships, even abuse. Everything that happens in our world today that we chose to ignore. Its time to be heard and Ms. Walden demands our attention through the voice of Cadence Miller, a 17 year old girl who caved in to peer pressure and made a terrible mistake.
Shes now isolated and alone. Her reputation is beyond repair and the only one who seems to understand her is her 28 year old calculus teacher.
In addition to Cadence's school life. Home wasn't much better where she was borderline emotionally abused by her parents. This poor girl is screaming for help and her parents call her a liar about being bullied. I'm so sad for this poor child. This is exactly how kids end up committing suicide. This book is horrifying not because of the writing, but because of the truth of our cruel world.
It's a real eye opener.
There's no two ways to dice it; Mr. Connelly is a major creep. Buying Cadence lunch, leaving notes in her locker, running into her at church and now volunteering at her youth group. This is too much. I understand they're both attracted to each other but he's the adult. He should know better.
This relationship is hard. Shes so young. Like immature young. Not only is she 17 but she's a very sheltered 17. What can she bring to a relationship with a 28 year old man? She cant even cook for God's sake! This is all wrong and i just can't see these two getting their HEA. I can't wait to see what book 2 will bring.
