I think I got past the initial shock of this book, I started to enjoy it for what it was. A modern day Lolita of sorts, however more distributing. The sex scenes were pretty vivid, which I wasn't expecting, but once I got past that, I thought it was a well written book. I picked it up because it was on a list that said if I liked American Psycho then I would like Tampa.
Essentially the plot is a pretty young teacher gets a job as an 8th grade English teacher and starts having an affair with a student, Jack. It's not a love story, I think that's why it's good. It is a story of a sociopath and she admits it.
