"A bold and powerfully written tale." - David Almond
A fifteen year old girl has a crush on her young English teacher. During a production of 'Romeo and Juliet', Rachel and Mike begin a sexual relationship. They think they're in love, but they're really in trouble.
The star-crossed lovers are always afraid of discovery as a school-girl fantasy turns into an X-rated nightmare.
Love Lessons was the first novel for young adults to address the sensitive issue of pupil/teacher relationships.
A gripping novel about one of the last great taboos: a teacher-pupil affair.
"A brave novel…a thoughtful study of young love." - Books for Keeps
