We Are the Goldens; Dana Reinhardt

We Are the GoldensWe Are the Goldens by Dana Reinhardt
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Another book that seems like only a slight revision of another, this time The Whole Golden World (even down to the use of "Golden" in the title!). I find the idea of teacher/student Relationships to be creepy, and any attempt to justify them just wrong.

So maybe it's just me, but while I understood Nell's reluctance to "tattle" on her sister, the book's passive approval of Layla's affair was bothersome. I kept hoping that there would be more in the way of consequences for Mr. B, or just something that showed how wrong this relationship was.
