I did like this book as I have always liked Lurlene McDaniel and this is like her other books but I didn't really like what it was about because there was so much of the teacher's input in it and I didn't like that. Not for a teenager to read. But it was a pretty good book although the ending wasn't what I expected either. However, I do want you to read it and take it from your own point of view because like I said, it is a great book! ( )

I really enjoyed this book, it probably is the first book I read completely in a day. The only thing i didn't really like was honey's perspective, she didn't really need to be in the book but other than that loved it. ( )

My middle school students were fascinated with this novel. It was in constant circulation. ( )

This book is not like other Lurlene McDaniel's books and deals with a topic that you hear about in the news ( )

Wow... I've never would have expected Lurlene McDaniel to write a book like this.

Completely different from her other books. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0385734530, Hardcover)

A teacher is supposed to impart a love of learning and a thirst for knowledge. It’s a bit different with Ms. Lori Settles. All the kids are talking about how hot she is–and she is especially interested in Ryan Piccoli. When she starts giving Ryan extra attention, he’s feeling more than happy–at first. He’s used to being the class clown, but really he’s a loner. One day after school, the friendship with Lori Settles goes farther than he ever expected. She’s his teacher. She’s at least twice his age. Intimacy with a teacher is wrong, yet it feels so good in every way. Soon, Lori is making demands and Ryan begins to feel overwhelmed, but Ryan refuses to even admit anything is going on. Something immoral is going on and before too long the choices made will change lives forever.
