Something Happened by Greg Logsted
"All around me I see people laughing, joking, and walking around with these huge, goofy smiles plastered on their faces. I've begun to wonder how they do it, and more important, will I ever be able to be like that again?"
Five months after his dad's unexpected death, Billy Romero is still struggling with the loss. Billy's mom spends more time talking to her Bluetooth than to him, and his best friend, Ziggy, just doesn't get it. There's no one who understands how alone Billy feels...except his new English teacher, the young and beautiful Miss Gate.
Miss Gate offers support and friendship, even giving Billy extra help with his writing outside of school. Billy isn't really sure how he feels about spending so much time with his teacher. It's a little weird, but it's also kind of exciting that someone like Miss Gate wants to hang out with him. But the closer they get, the more Billy wonders what kind of friendship this really is....
I've seen the Lifetime movie The Mary Kay Letourneau Story and I really found it quite fascinating. So, when I saw this book with the teacher and the student, I got the feeling that it would be similar to The Mary Kay Letourneau Story and it would be cool to learn more about the subject.
Just in case you noticed, this book is already available in book stores so I didn't think this post really qualifies under the title, "Waiting on Wednesday", so I changed the post title to "Wishlist Wednesday". I'm not really sure if I should put the person's name that created "Waiting on Wednesday", since some people do and some people don't. I'll just leave that out there for you guys to answer. I'd appreciate it :)
Arielle and Marisa may post books from their wishlist later on.
