I have always loved books ever since I learnt to read. The sort of person who would look at an instruction manual if there were nothing else available. Not that that has happened too often - I have tottering piles of books not to mention e books. I will read almost anything as l long as it holds my interest. Besides books. I love music, photography, cryptic crosswords and playing Fitz 1 & 2 games.
The Affair: The Shocking, Gripping Story of a Schoolgirl and a Scandal - Amanda Brooke

Four and a half stars.
A compelling story about a 15 year old girl and the adult who took advantage of her but should have known much better. Thought provoking, tense and all too believable how awful some people can be - predator not carer. Loved the book but not the characters who were about as awful as they could be, ranging from weak and wishy washy to plain manipulative. They were not at all likeable, most seemed to have serious flaws one way or another. This novel was hard to put down and I ignored everything just to carry on reading it! It certainly kept me gripped from the first to last page.
