Synopsis

Drowning Instinct by Ilsa J. Bick

Jenna is sweet sixteen, the age when a girl is supposed to find her prince. Instead she finds Mr Anderson - intelligent, handsome, married Mr Anderson, who just happens to be her chemistry teacher. With a dark past and a difficult family, Jenna is just happy to have someone to protect her, to worry about her, to love her. But should she be suspicious of Mr Anderson's reputation for helping 'damaged' students? Why is the most popular girl in school suddenly jealous of her? And where is Mr Anderson's wife? This is a love story that breaks all the rules, but that won't stop it breaking your heart.

Reviews

'A novel of pain, desperation and romance that breaks all the rules. A brilliant read'

'Compelling, thoughtful and beautifully written. I adored every word of it and I implore each and every one of you to go and read it'

'Every page simmers with suspense, and the knowledge that something big is coming, something bad bubbling under the surface ... Jenna's story captivated me'
