    Vile pupil, Josh is Sarah’s biggest challenge. He plays horrible yet funny games of ‘Teacher and Pupil’ to avenge past teachers who have treated his dyslexia as an excuse to make him undergo tests and ‘label’ him. The parts where he ‘blackmails a teacher’ and ‘plays with a teacher’s personal life’ are funny. But when he becomes suspect to a stabbing, Sarah begins to question her position as a teacher. The part where she holds his hands to make letter shapes in the air, where those very hands could have stabbed someone, is full of conflict. She learns some pretty unsavory things about his family, which draws parallels with her ex-boyfriend’s ‘clique’ headed by a psychopath. A story full of betrayal, conflict and shame.

    A so and so novel. A bit tame given the blurb on the back over. That said it was entertaining.
