not a bad book to read

A really interesting concept. Prue and her sister Grace haven't been to school since they were tiny, instead kept at home to learn from their overbearing, strict father. When their father has a stroke they are sent to the local school, where Prue finds it very difficult to fit in. Struggling, she begins to fall in love with her cool art teacher - the only person who seems to accept her for who she is.

Prue is an interesting character. Her behaviour over her teacher is disgraceful - but understandable, considering how sheltered her life has been. She goes between loathing her father, and spending hours trying to help him learn to talk again. The art teacher, Rax is more loathesome - stringing along his young student, and then blaming it all on her when the school catches a whiff of it.

The book isn't badly written, though there's nothing really spectacular about the writing - it's standard modern British fare. It was a good read, though, and it was difficult to put the book down ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0552553522, Paperback)

Fourteen-year-old Prue and her sister Grace have been educated at home by their super-strict father all their lives. Their attempts to find out what being an ordinary teenager is like — buying nice clothes instead of wearing Mum’s odd, hand-made garments, reading teenage magazines etc. — are greeted with fury by their Dad. But when he is hospitalized with a stroke, Prue suddenly discovers what it’s like to have a little freedom.

Unable to cope, their mother enrolls them at the local comprehensive where, for the first time, they experience school life. Prue had never thought it would be so so hard to fit in. The only person she can talk to is the young Art teacher, Rax. She and Rax bond over art lessons, and soon he asks her to babysit for him and his wife. This becomes a regular “date” and Prue can’t wait for the ten minutes they have alone together when he drives her home. She wonders if Rax has the same feelings for her. But he can’t act upon them, can he?
