Reading this was a lot of fun since I lived in the town that this sex scandal happened in. This memoir is set in the mountain town of Sonora, Ca. As I read I could tell that not a lot has changed in the town over the last sixty years. It was easy to imagine just how the scandal of a student/teacher relationship would have torn apart their tiny world.

Although the story was fun to read from a personal standpoint overall I think most might be disappointed. It moved at a slow pace and skipped the juiciest parts altogether. The ending drifted away from the meat of the plot and focused on a different subject having nothing to do with the rest of the story.
