This is the story of a brand new teacher attempting to find her way in an inner city school. The principal is a guy from literally hell who really gives her a tough time. The kids-well-lets just say they are a challenge until she finally figures out how to reach them. She lives with 2 other teachers who are her best friends-and sometimes her worst enemies. Carolyn Jenkins needs to find herself!
When Carolyn meets up with an older man in a bar one evening she is in love-but doesn't trust herself enough. She does get rid of the boyfriend of many years thankfully. She meets his six nutty as fruitcake sisters and breaks up with Mr. Right but is miserable. One of her roomies is now engaged and she is not talking to the other. Can anything go right in her life?
YES-and if you are sentimental (which I am) tears should be flowing at the happy ending. I read this book very quickly-I kept wanting to know what was going to happen next. Kathleen Shoop has written a book which will resonate with many readers on many different levels. 5 Star-Definitely!
For every woman who wonders if she chose the right career
Carolyn Jenkins strives for two things–to be the greatest teacher ever and to find true love. She’s as skilled at both as an infant trying to eat with a fork. Carolyn’s suburban upbringing and genuine compassion for people who don’t fit effortlessly into society are no match for weapon-wielding, struggling students, drug-using colleagues, and a wicked principal.
Meanwhile, her budding relationship with a mystery man is thwarted by his gaggle of eccentric sisters. Carolyn depends on her friends to get her through the hard times, but with poverty-stricken children at her feet and a wealthy man at her side, she must define who she is.
The reality of life after college can be daunting, the road to full-fledged adulthood long and unscripted. Can Carolyn take control and craft the existence she always wanted?
