Seventh grade teacher Beatrice Hempel is new to eaching, new to the school, newly engaged, and newly bereft of her devoted father. Overwhelmed by her newness, she struggles to figure out what is expected of her in life and at work. Is it acceptable to introduce swear words into the English curriculum, enlist students to write their own report cards, or bring up personal experiences while teaching a sex-education class? Here are characters at their most vulenrable and precarious. But Bynum, a National Book Award finalist, has that journey down the rabbit hole to wonderland capacity. No suffering beyond the pale here!
