...this exploration of illicit sex, so chillingly and precisely fleshed out, is a serious pageturner.
-Guardian

Synopsis

'It's the job of adults to teach teenagers to be responsible. That's what grownups do.' You've fallen for your son's best friend. You are a teacher. You are abusing your power, your responsibility...your student. You know it's wrong. But you cannot stop. I suppose in the beginning it was a love story. 'The danger loomed much larger than I had feared. Not because he might report me. But because he would not.' Controversial, unsettling and fascinating - you won't be able to stop talking about The Kingdom Of Childhood.
