Hit by @lorieanngrover #Review & #Giveaway #thanks @BookSparksPR

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."

About the Author


I was born and raised in Miami, Florida. I used to pretend to read before I could by carrying around Nancy Drew books and flipping through the pages. I studied ballet for ten years and was a member of the Miami Ballet Company. When I grew too tall for the profession, I turned my focus to fine art at the University of Miami. Eventually, my love for the written word yielded verse novels and board books. My fantasy novel, Firstborn, received a Kirkus Starred Review, and my board book, Bedtime Kiss for Little Fish, was named a Parents Magazine Best Children's Book. I co-founded readergirlz and readertotz. Living with my husband in the foothills of Mt. Rainier, I write, practice weapons tai chi, and watch hawks take flight.

My Review 4 Stars

I have been a die hard fan of Lorie's ever since I picked up her book Firstborn which I am still hoping for a book two and three from. (ya and maybe a movie).  So when she agreed to come back on my show as well as getting this book via BookSparksPr as well as another site.  I jumped at the chance.  Well this story centers around our main character Sarah whom is in love with her teacher.  And one split decision gets her hit by his car. I have to say that this was a very quick read (took me about an hour or so).  This one is told in two POVs (Sarah and her teacher) The ending left me asking questions and wanting to know what had happened to the characters in the long run. It would have been nice to have a 1 year later or something to finish it out.

But it was still a pretty good read.
