Grading On A Curve (Paperback)
Fifteen-year-old Jackie should be obsessing over the cute boy in gym class. Her English teacher, David, should stick to teaching her the nuances of Homer. But Jackie and David aren't sneaking around behind his wife's back to discuss the classics.
Jackie never wanted to be this girl, but she can't help loving David the way she does. And David wouldn't risk prison to be with her if he didn't feel the same way. No matter what their secret costs her, Jackie is determined to pay it.
At least until she learns that she's not David's only secret... and finds herself facing the most devastating choice she's ever had to make.
Andrea Wickberg's debut novel, Grading On A Curve, dives into the murky domain of non-consensual consent. It explores the troubling existence of predators who stand in line with you at Starbucks, the self-deception of the people who love them, and the redemptive healing power of survivors who show up for each other.
