The Purple Iris
"- I'm Mr. Bostwick, your English teacher for this year."
"You are? How- what?"
A competent, sensible teenage girl with high hopes of attending a grade- A university, majoring in journalism, then soon traveling the world on her own.
Until then, she has a bigger issue at hand: surviving her final year of high school.
Returning from her ten day suspension, she becomes reacquainted with her friends, new studies, and a particularly unfamiliar English teacher.
Throughout the exhaustive school year, she strangely finds herself slowly falling for him, as he discovers similar feelings for Ashlyn.
But simultaneously, it seems too faulty to begin a relationship with a man that is known to others as a high school teacher.
Emotions pour out of the soul, hearts explode, and secrets are told; What would you do, if you loved your English teacher?
