When does a girl become a woman? Is it when she graduates high school? When she turns eighteen? Or when she loses her virginity...?
Gloria Goodman couldn’t wait to graduate and to be of legal age. Living in an abusive home and then in foster care matured her beyond her years. Now she needs to earn extra money this summer before moving away to college and away from her former life.
Nate Larsen is the hot, popular, high school biology teacher the girls lust for and the boys admire. Uninterested in the flirty and flighty students he teaches, he remembers “Gloomy Gloria” because she nearly failed his class. But he desperately needs help over the summer term, and when Gloria impresses him with her office skills, he sees her in a new way that’s not entirely academic—nor professional.
