My goodness, this story was addictive! I started reading it on my lunch break and couldn’t put it down! Finished it the same day, in fact. Having worked in the education system for years, I can say that the story is unfortunately realistic in a lot of ways. It’s also a pretty unique twist on real life, though. Becky is one of my favorite characters from a book in a while. She’s exceptionally real, right down to the flaws and insecurities of the typical introverted thirty-year-old woman. If anything, I would’ve liked more of this story. It was short and sweet, which let me get the answers I wanted right away, but that didn’t leave a lot of room for growth and development, and I found that I wanted more answers regarding Jason and his family.
I will point out that this story deals with what many people would call unethical behavior in the romantic involvement of a teacher and her recently graduated student. (I’m not sure that counts as a spoiler because I’m pretty sure you could figure that out in the first few pages). If you’ve got major issues with that, definitely pass on this one.
The story was compelling. Like I said before, if I could change anything about it, I’d just ask for more. I’m one of those people who likes to answer every possible question before it’s asked, so concise stories that meet all of their plot points without the extra fluff always leave me wanting more. All in all, though Jacobey did an excellent job with this story. The ending was nothing like what I expected, and the plot twists caught me by surprise. I definitely recommend it!
