Meghan Wilker Ha! I LOVE that you rated your own book! :)

Katie D Just watched you on "Today" and added your book to my "must read" list. As a former HS Drama geek and mother of two young kids, I look forward to reading your book!

Eileen I just added it, too. I sub teach middle school, and kids can be very mean at that age. I look forward to reading tour book!

message 4: by Jacob M. (new) - added it

Jacob M. Palmer Fascinating, especially the mirroring behavior of the teachers and students. I wonder how much of the fact that institutional teaching is not merit-based plays a role in attracting teachers of such caliber. Very often tenure is more about popularity than results.

message 5: by Joe (new)

Joe Sounds interesting, especially the role teachers play in the students' educations. I will be disappointed if it presents an argument for merit-based pay (which Jake kind of mentioned). Merit-based pay doesn't equate good teachers, it means there are better students.

Eric Baxley I read this when I was going through a pretty hard time in my life. It kind of let me know who I truly was. Thank you sooo much Ms. Robbins!

Brian The "reveal" about Regan was very well executed and, I dare say, a bit unfair to your poor unsuspecting readers.
