RA Nelson: Teach Me

Wow.

Talk about impact, because this book has it in spades.

It’s written in first person, in Carolina “Nine” Livingston’s POV. Nine is every teenage girl out there, yet she is still Nine. 

She has an affair with a teacher–every parent’s nightmare.

She survives it, and its aftermath. Not unscathed, perhaps, but still whole.

Certainly, it’s a dark book. Of course, it’s a book about an adolescent living through adolescence, and for many, it was a dark time.

This book is pitch-perfect, and you absolutely have to read it.

    That sounds like a good read. When an author can pull off a teenager’s voice in first person, it’s great. I’ll have to give this one a try. Thanks for the review!

    I agree completely with what you said. I read this book last year and I was completely captivated by it. The style and tone the author used was pitch-perfect.
