TEACH ME is poetic and scary and reminds me a lot of Laurie Halse Anderson's Speak. The characters stayed with me long after I had put down the book. Everything in Nine's world feels eerily real; you will feel like screaming at her for her actions while at the same time feeling her hurt. The author has done a beautiful, near-perfect job of portraying a devastating affair between student and teacher. If you are not faint-hearted, then pick this book up.
This was a good read, but not exactly the kind of story that makes an impact that stays with you. It starts in a strange sort of flashback that takes a few chapters to start making sense. It's also clearly written for teenaged readers.
