Very engrossing tale--Jeanie is a teacher and her students are preparing for their GED, they all have police records and most repeat offenders. A pipe bomb goes off and she is going to protect her "kids" even with their secrets, she knows they did not do this. Now she has to find out who did. Kept me guessing until the end. I liked this book. Quick read and well written--was never bored and the ending was not what i expected.

This was a really quick read, and I enjoyed it a lot. This teacher is really an advocate for her students, and her caring seems to make a real difference for them. There is a murderer and the people killed all have a connection to students in a GED class for students with prior criminal activity. So the students are the first suspects. I thought I had it figured out and then I was misdirected, but in the end not that surprised by the killer, though I was guessing till the last few pages who the killer was! I really enjoyed the realistic interactions between teacher and students. I think I'll go see what else this author wrote.
