The inside cover made the book sound more intriguing than it ended up. The main character, PJ, is not very likable and it was hard to feel sympathy for him even after his mother's accident. While being unmotivated and indecisive are common teenage characteristics, this book doesn't add anything to the field, provide a role model, or even entertain. ( )

A slacker student’s perspective changes when he gets his hands on his teacher’s journal.

PJ Barnes is on the fast track to failing high school, and everyone is riding him about it—especially his English teacher, Mrs. Jordan. Then, somehow, her personal journal gets mixed up with his homework papers. Thinking he’ll find the answers to the next quiz, he starts reading and quickly discovers it’s not what he expected. As insights and family secrets surface, PJ begins to realize that Mrs. Jordan knows more about his past, his present, and his future than he ever imagined.
