Seventeen year old Rose Goldman is highly unpopular in the little town of Halfway. Ever since the 'attack' when she was a girl, people and animals have been afraid of her. She gets bullied in school, and called 'wet dog' because of the way she smells, despite being extremely hygienic. However, life takes a turn when a new teacher starts at Halfway High. Mr. Stone, the quirky and charismatic English teacher is twice Rose's age, but she feels an unexplainable pull towards him from day one. Despite her better judgement, Rose pursues a friendship with Mr. Stone, who seems unable to stay away from her.
What is pulling this unlikely pair together?

This book was intriguing to me from the very beginning. A teacher student romance with a paranormal twist? Who wouldn't be interested in a book like that. I read the whole thing in one sitting because, basically, I wanted to know what was going to happen between the pair. I wanted to know if society would keep them apart and I wanted to see the repercussions if they were caught. Even thought this is a slightly paranormal read, as you can very well guess from the description and cover, the actions, reactions, and repercussions that occurred in the book were very believable. It is a cute read if you are looking for something with a sweet romance between two characters, but, like the description says, do not read it if you are uncomfortable with the idea of a romantic relationship between a student and teacher.
I liked Mr. Stone. He was sort of a dork and a classic professor. Also,some of the things he said made me laugh (although I am sure it was unintentional). I really felt bad for him when he was struggling through his feelings and thinking of the repercussions Rose was just all- to hell with the law! We won't get caught. Don't get me wrong. I liked her. She was sweet and had a lot to deal with and I can understand her need for a deep relationship like the one she wanted with Mr. Stone. (Something that got confusing throughout the book, however, was when she kept switching back and forth between calling him Mr. Stone and his real name.)
Other than that, it was a very sweet, somewhat sad read with believable characters and scenes. I am intrigued to know what will happen between them, though. And the ending was unconventional and sweet. (:

What a sad yet timely story with all of the bullying going on right now. I hope everything turns out well for Rose in the story. I'm definitely going to have to read Alpha Girl just to make sure the bullies get their just desserts;)ReplyDelete
