Seventeen-year-old Morgan Monetti shocks the world when she walks into the courtroom and takes a seat behind disgraced teacher, TJ Hill. Everyone in town knows Mr. Hill took advantage of Morgan. Still, Morgan is determined to take responsibility for her part in their illegal relationship.
Dinah Monetti wants justice for her daughter and her family. Morgan was always the model child, the one that Dinah did not have to worry about. Now Dinah just wishes she could make her daughter see the truth behind this foolish infatuation.
Rain Hill thought she and TJ were happy. Sure they were having trouble conceiving the child they both desperately wanted, but they were married and in love. Why would her husband throw everything away on a dead-end relationship with a seventeen-year-old girl?
This edgy novel tackles a plotline that could be ripped from any number of recent headlines and does it with grace and insight. Told from a shifting perspective, Ms. Riggle takes readers deep into gritty real world emotions and makes them see themselves in a new light. A must read for those not afraid to face the darker side of growing up in this fast-paced world we live in.
