LIKE IT'S 1999: Diary of a Teenager in Love with a Teacher
True confessions of a real-life high school student on the cusp of a new millennium.
On the eve of the year 2000, high school student Giselle struggles with spirituality, ambiguous friendships, a family dealing with the aftermath of substance abuse, and deepening feelings of attraction toward her English teacher, a married man more than twice her age. Over the course of one school year, she shifts from seeing Lawrence as a father figure to falling obsessively in love.
Is Giselle making a total fool of herself, or will her teacher return her affection? Having an affair with a student would easily cost Lawrence his career, his wife, and his kids, not to mention his sanity. Will a by-the-books teacher sacrifice everything to indulge Giselle's teenage crush?
LIKE IT'S 1999 is the actual, unabridged, honest-to-god diary of a teenager in love with her teacher.
