After receiving a full-ride scholarship to Mills College for Girls, it appears Sarah’s future is all laid out before her … that is until she walks into a poetry class led by Mr. Haddings, a student teacher from the nearby University of Washington. Suddenly, life on the UW campus seems very appealing, and Sarah finds herself using her poetry journal to subtly declare her feelings for Haddings. Convinced Mr. Haddings is flirting back, she sets off for school in the rain with a poem in her back pocket—one that will declare her feelings once and for all.
Mr. Haddings has noticed Sarah’s attention; the fallout from any perceived relationship with a student is too great a risk, and he has decided to end all speculation that morning.
But everything changes when Mr. Haddings feels a thud on his front bumper when he glances away from the road, and finds Sarah in the street with blood pooling beneath her.

           "My Thoughts"
When I was first reading this book, I was a little confused. There was so much conversations going on I couldn't keep up. That was the only of the downfall. I like how they had a loving family, and brothers and sisters arguing. I really could relate to that. I liked the story concept of this book. I enjoyed this read and the author. I.I think this is a brilliant book. I liked the message the author gives to young adult readers out there. I also liked the fact that she made one of the main characters got to college. Its very hard it this society to get a job without going to college and that was a good touch. The love the two characters had was also a great add on. This is a highly recommend to "High School" teens. Also, that you can have fun in college but it comes responsibility. There was such good suspense when Sarah is found with blood pooling beneath her. I won't give any spoilers but enjoy this well written book.
