Teach Me Review:

Saturday, January 30, 2010

What happens when a high school student and her teacher cross that line?

Teach Me by R. A. Nelson is a powerful novel that readers will not be able to put down. From the very first page, Nine speaks in a voice that is at once raw, honest, direct, and unusually eloquent. "There has been an earthquake in my life," she says, inviting you inside an experience that fascinates everyone-an affair between teacher and student.

This is the story of Carolina “Nine” Livingston and is focused on her emotions, the book is about a really controversial and modern topic, it is about Carolina’s affair with her teacher. I didn’t knew much about this book, just that it was about a student’s affair and at the beginning it took a little effort for me to keep reading, however, just after I read around fifty pages I couldn’t stop.

“Nine” got this feeling thru all her life, the feeling that she didn’t fit with boys her age, thus wanted to have a mature relationship. When English teacher Mr. Mann arrives to her school “Nine” felt an immediate connection, both of them submerged into a deep passionate affair. They focused solely on their love without caring for any side effects or repercussions until there’s a change of path and one of them ends with a broken heart and on the edge of craziness.
The writing is very provocative and poetic, sometimes I didn’t agree with Carolina, and the question I had at the end: Lesson learned? . Overall interesting reading but I do feel there are some loose strings at the end.
