Schooling

by Heather McGowan

If you are looking for a novel clear in plot, language and direction this isn't it! The fluid style can confuse as memories, people, events and emotions, past and present, are delivered, simultaneously, in one lyrical flow. If you're willing to go with that flow, this book offers an original view of a teenager's mind.

Says it when he picks up his palette knife says it once more when she sighs from holding her head still for too long. You are.
