A boarding school story for adults. The author admits that she was fascinated by boarding school stories when she was younger and that this was a natural progression of that fascination. And it is. While the cover bills it as "the secret diary of a teacher in turmoil" it isn't really what it is. This isn't a story of diary entries or a first person look at the world but a story of a woman working in teaching in a boarding school and the variety of issues that crop up.

But like a lot of this genre any issues that happen are skimmed rather than explored and it does give the feel of the boarding school story. Some of the issues explored are the kind of thing that crops up in most schools but there's no real exploration of the whys and wherefores. Maggie Adair, our heroine, is due some hard looking at life stuff and needs to explore issues rather than hope that they will go away.

While the author claims that this is new territory she's exploring it really isn't, but fans of the genre will like it.
It's nothing major and it really is quite typical chick-lit but it was a fun and quick read. ( )
