This novel takes us back and forth between present day Jane Milton - reluctantly returning to her old boarding school as a first time teacher because she is out of options to pay back her ex-husband's debt. And Jane Milton 35-years ago, during her senior year at Grove Academy. Jane and her two best friends Kat and Lissa are convinced their English teacher was involved in an unsolved murder that took place on school grounds. They dissect lines and lines of poetry looking for clues that will prove she's guilty.
Thanks to her least favourite student, and an old friend and now colleague, present day Jane is able to finally uncover several truths and put the past to rest.
A really solid story. Filled with good writing, backstabbing, mystery and intrigue. And unfortunately poetry.
