Smart girls aren’t supposed to do stupid things.

Madelyn Hawkins is super smart. At sixteen, she’s so gifted that she can attend college through a special program at her high school. On her first day, she meets Bennett. He’s cute, funny, and kind. He understands Madelyn and what she’s endured – and missed out on – in order to excel academically and please her parents. Now, for the first time in her life, she’s falling in love.

There’s only one problem. Bennett is Madelyn’s college professor, and he thinks she’s eighteen – because she hasn’t told him the truth.

The story of their forbidden romance is told in letters that Madelyn writes to Bennett – both a heart-searing ode to their ill-fated love and an apology.

While I’ll be the first to admit that the sound of Madelyn and Bennett’s rather unconventional romance initially gave me pause when I first heard of it, if I’ve learnt anything from my recent experience with Tracey Garvis-Graves’ On The Island, it’s to remain open-minded about even the most unusual or unexpected concepts until I’ve experienced them for myself. My heart absolutely aches for Madelyn and the position she’s thrust into, and I’m extremely curious to see how the relationship will play out between the two leads, even if the descriptor of ‘ill-fated’ makes me a little nervous!

  1. I definitely think the teacher/student relationship could be done badly, but I have hope that it’ll be handled well! I want it to be, at least! 🙂 I do love the cover so, though.

    Great pick!

    This concept always intrigues me! I agree with you, you definitely need to have an open mind when reading about these subjects. I loved On the Island, so hopefully Amanda will be able to pull off this topic well, too. Great pick, Jen!

    I haven’t read this one nor On The Island (I want to though, because I’ve heard good things). This does sound interesting. I have to find out what happens to a girl put in that situation!

    My Waiting on Wednesday!

  4. Sounds good. I hope you enjoy reading it when it comes out. Come check out my WOW post.

  5. I can’t wait for this book. I’m a strange one and love forbidden love stories (of legal age obviously) and can’t wait to see how this plays out. 🙂

    Stay awesome Jen!

    I am looking forward to this as well. I love that you mentioned On the Island. I was completely uncomfortable with the concept of that book… until I read it. It was incredible.

    See what else I’m waiting on.

  8. Oooo this sounds INTERESTING. I’ve never read any of Amanda/Mandy’s books before, but I took a writing class where she was the instructor and it was hugely helpful. Maybe I need to pick up one of her books!

  11. Eep! I don’t know about this one. First of all, as someone who is in the process of becoming a teacher, the whole student/teacher relationship is a big fat no-no. I get that the lines are stretched when the student is college age & the professor is young, but STILL. It makes me so nervous. I AM curious about the format for this story though — told through letters? Very interesting.

  12. I really expected to love this one when I read it a few months ago, but… nope. Not even close. I hope it works out for you though 🙂

  13. Huh, I am curious about The Truth About You And Me. But to be honest will probably skip it for a bit, when things get all statutory, that makes me a bit ill.
