It Is What It Is

We feel the impatience and frustration as new teacher, down trodden Georgie fights to prove her worth against the self-centred vice-principal, Jose, who appears to have his own reasons for wanting her to fail. Georgie also fights other unexpected elements which leaves the reader wondering what will happen next.  Yet, despite what happens to her, Georgie finds she is supported on all sides, especially by her Mentoring teacher, Alex. However, all is not well with the tall, dark and handsome technical teacher. Even so, Georgie finds herself slowly growing to admire Alex, drawing ever closer to him.

We are teased into the expectation of an all-encompassing love story, and we discover a heart-breaking tragedy which will leave us stranded and perhaps devastated. Yet maybe not. Perhaps all is not lost? Only time will tell.
