I just finished reading this delightful book by Kathleen Shoop. It was a masterfully crafted story about a teacher from a “posh” neighborhood going out and teaching at an inner city school. Being an only child has the main character, Carolyn, struggling with insecurity and trying to find her “life’s goal”. Through her interactions with her roommates and their various personalities and traumas, Kathleen paints a story that draws you in and is honest to the core.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and if you are in the mood for a nice story without blood and guts and violence, then this is a great read for you. I give it 5 out of 5 stars.
Genre – Women’s Fiction
Rating – PG15
