I'm currently reading Tom Perrotta's Nine Inches from which "Grade My Teacher" comes. It's my favorite story in the collection so far, uncomfortably realistic and sad, with traces of pity thrown in. A teacher confronting a student over her bad online evaluation may not be professional or proper but I so can see it happening in real life. A terrific story with unexpected pathos and humanity, "Grade My Teacher" alone is why you should read Nine Inches.
