    PDF/EPUB Precocious Hardly any meat and potatoes here Pretty basic age gap romance that doesn't offer anything other than a passable unreliable narrator who repeats herself probably to fill pages If you are the kind of reader who wants to know what happens next in any book you would be disappointed with what happens next in this

    PDF/EPUB Precocious I have to admit to being a bit weary of unreliable narrators it seems to be the go to narrative mode for everyone these days The first 80 pages of this book is uneven a bit muddled in places and jumps about so you have trouble sinking into the story and working out who is who I felt there was a lack of clarity in the writing at the beginning But there is something there in the story that is compelling and ke

    PDF/EPUB Precocious Precocious by Joanna Barnard Fiona Palmer has a crush on her English teacher Henry Morgan Who didn’t have a crush on a teacher at sometime during one’s school life? This one is different though; very different Fiona feels the connection and Morgan feels it too She is fourteen; he is old enough to clichéd but fitting nonetheless

review Precocious 100 Joanna Barnard Ç 0 summary characters Precocious Cious and lonely fourteen year old Her schoolgirl crush developed into an intense relationship but it was always one which she controlledOr did she. I find myself unsure how to describe this book It deals with very intense issues in a surprisingly gentle way that s not to say they are downplayed that it handles them with a delicacy and objective perspective The result is both refreshing and unsettlingThe plot unravels gently before you it doesn t deliver shock or drama in that regard the author deftly offers new information that seems to simply fill in gaps rather than a huge reveal This also lends itself to a pretty subtle character development Despite that I didn t really warm to any of the characters probably only really Mari despite her fairly minor roleThe story covers two timelines in Fiona s life alternating between them fairly evenly As an adolescent she seems to not fit in and finds solace in her feelings for a teacher As a married woman she seems to have a similar feeling of not uite belonging and turns her feelings once to the man who defined her type The plots run alongside each other smoothly with few anachronistic checks and a general sense that both could exist without the other but that they are both richer as a pairTruly the most laudable aspect of the story remains the manner with which the author doesn t paint the controversial subject matter in sensationalist black and white She exercises restraint in offering up the events being recounted I was surprise how sympathetic the protagonists start out Both slowly reveal the damage inside them The author deftly shows how Fiona has grown from her early experiences with some powerfully significant aspects presented both sensitively and capably The depth this gave her character was very significant in keeping me engaged Henry offers us a contrasting perspective on how people change over time and yet it too helped played a big part in keeping me readingFor my taste the book took a while to get started I was almost halfway through before I really felt things were happening but that is a subjective aspect I was expecting to be a bit hooked and compelled to keep reading but unfortunately it didn t have that grip over me That said the book is well written and did offer enough to keep me coming back I thought the ending was delivered well however a bit like ending a meal after the main course I was satisfied but I would ve happily had a little extra too It leaves me feeling content having read it but despite the strengths I think it is unlikely I will return to reread itA complimentary copy of this book was supplied for review by the publisher as part of the First Reads program
