Love and Other Subjects - Summer Reading Road Trip Stop #8

Stop #8


For every woman who thought she chose the wrong career…

In Love and Other Subjects Carolyn Jenkins strives for two things—to be the greatest teacher ever and to find true love. She’s as skilled at both as an infant chowing down with a fork. Carolyn’s suburban upbringing and genuine compassion for people who don’t fit effortlessly into society are no match for weapon-wielding, struggling students, drug-using colleagues, and a wicked principal.

Meanwhile, her budding relationship with a mystery man is thwarted by his gaggle of eccentric sisters. Carolyn depends on her friends to get her through the hard times, but with poverty-stricken children at her feet and a wealthy man at her side, she must define who she is. The reality of life after college can be daunting—the road to full-fledged adulthood is long and unscripted. Can Carolyn take control and craft the life she’s always wanted?

My Review  
I received a free copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review.  Carolyn Jenkins is a new schoolteacher.  She lives in Maryland with her two teacher friends Laura and Nina.  Laura is a sweet “Southern Belle”, while Nina is abrasive and right to the point.  All Carolyn wants out of life are two things; for her kids to trust her and know she believes in them, and to find true love.  Will she be able to overcome Principal Klein?   Is Jeep the guy for her?

This was such a fascinating novel that I was drawn in from the very first page.  I loved that although it primarily dealt with Carolyn’s job and her quest for love, there is quite a bit of humor, especially the names of some characters.  I found myself constantly drawn in to every situation.  This was a great endearing read, one that you’ll love.
