Heart, You Bully, You Punk
Esker spends her days teaching math at a private school in Brooklyn. At thirty- one, after early loss and romantic disappointment, she has found refuge in the neat solutions of geometry and algebra. But when her favorite student, Ann, is mysteriously injured and is confined indoors while she recovers, Esker begins home-tutoring the precocious teenager. Soon, much to her chagrin, Esker finds herself falling edgily, haltingly in love with AnnÂ's father. As Leah Hager Cohen uses this unlikely triangle to chart the complexities of affection, each of her endearing characters draws urgently closer to making a decision that will have irrevocable effects on the others. Quirky, moving, and exquisitely written, Heart, You Bully, You Punk will resonate with anyone who has struggled with an unruly heart.
