Goodreads Synopsis: After receiving a full-ride scholarship to Mills College for Girls, it appears Sarah's future is all laid out before her. That is until she walks into a poetry class led by Mr. Haddings, a student teacher from the nearby University of Washington. Suddenly, life on the UW campus seems very appealing, and Sarah finds herself using her poetry journal to subtly declare her feelings for Haddings. Convinced Mr. Haddings is flirting back, she sets off for school in the rain with a poem in her back pocket. One that will declare her feelings once and for all.
Mr. Haddings has noticed Sarah's attention; the fallout from any perceived relationship with a student is too great a risk, and he has decided to end all speculation that morning.
But everything changes when Mr. Haddings feels a thud on his front bumper when her glances away from the road and finds Sarah in the street with blood pooling beneath her.
My Review: What a story! This is a fast paced story that will draw you in from the beginning. In fact, I easily read this in one day, I just couldn't put it down! My only complaint, if I had to have one, would be that I thought the book moved a little too fast. The entire story is told over a three day period. I have two reasons for wanting the story to slow down just a bit: the first reason is that I would have liked to know more about the 'relationship' between Sarah and Mr. Haddings, before the incident happened. I didn't feel that I knew enough of their story before the traumatic twists and turns happened. Also, I thought it was a little unbelievable how fast it all took place. To have had the injuries she sustained, and to be released from the hospital so soon, just seems a little far fetched for me. However, besides those facts, this was an incredible story! I can't wait to read more by Lorie Ann Grover. I definitely recommend you read this book!
