it was amazing
Read in December, 2010

There have been other YA books about predatory males obsessing over high school girls, but what makes this one stand out is its quiet intensity. There is no violence or physicality here, just a believable (and chilling) portrait of an adult's psychological and emotional abuse of a young girl who, initially gratified by the interest of her mentor, comes to see his behavior as inappropriate. The writing is subtle and nuanced in this hard-to-forget novel.
