Goodbye, Perfect by Sara Barnard is a great and different perspective on things we hear about in the news every day: inappropriate relationships with teachers and students.
Eden McKinley knows she can’t count on much in this world, but she can depend on Bonnie, her solid, steady, straight-A best friend. So it’s a complete shock when, five days before the start of their GCSEs, Bonnie runs away with a guy Eden knows nothing about. And it’s the last person she would ever have expected. Her teacher. When the police ask Eden for help – she in unsure where her loyalties will lie and she is forced to question what she thought she knew was right.
Often stories like this are from the first-hand perspective – but hearing from a friend who is witnessing the situation is interesting. A good read for Teens.
