My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Just arrived from Germany through BM.
A splendid and shocking (?) book written by Zoë Heller.
This is a love story between a new pottery teacher (Sheba) at St. George and a teenager.
The plot also shows the friendship between Sheba and Barbara who will write a diary describing their friendship and how Barbara helped Sheba to face her destiny.
It is admirable the way the author managed to introduce some hints of humor in this tragic story of passion, jealously and envy.
The original title – What Was She Thinking? – seems more appropriate than this one.
