Description

He's my teacher. I shouldn't be alone with him. But I can't help that he's irresistible. I let the door silently close at my back. He stared at me, and a taut quiet stretched between us. "I like hearing you play," I said, moving toward him. He turned, in sync with my slow approach. He looked up at me but didn't say anything. I rested my clammy hand on the cold, slick body of the baby grand. "May I?" The muscles in his throat shifted, then he swallowed. "Eden." My knees weakened, like a soft tickling kiss had just been blown against the backs of them. "Is it okay?" I asked. His gaze held mine like two hands joined. He understood what I was really asking. "Let me stay," I said. "Please." "You're going to get me in trouble," he said.

original post here Being in school, it is a law set in stone that student-teacher relationship is prohibited. Well, the more it appears to be tempting. This is a coming of age story of Eden - the girl who appears to have everything. She's one of the most popular girls at school, wealthy, and beautiful. Months away from graduation, she then met their new teacher, Mr. Christian, who will change her forever. I love the story of Eden and how she fell in-love with her teacher. She initially appeared as one of the popular girls-type with a snobby attitude. She always gets what she wants, that's what most people tell her. Maybe she did because she's popular and rich. But that's only on the surface because she might have everything and gets what she wants, but in truth what she needed the most is out of her reach. Mr. Christian is a new teacher in Eden's school, young and good looking (despite his lack of fashion sense), it's not surprising that he caught Eden's eye. His good nature and maturity will have an effect on Eden's personal growth and thus making what she feels as crush turn into something deep. The given conflict in itself is enough to mold the story. I find Eden's character transformation beautiful because she started out as somewhat of a shallow character that slowly realized it and struggled to learn and mature. She realized that she has to work hard to get what she really needs. Mr. Christian in turn is very kind, passionate with music, and his aura is infectious that you can't help but fall in-love with him as well. He might be young to be a teacher but he can wise or mature for his age. I don't really read contemporary books so much but this one really got into me and highly recommend it for reading.show more

"The melody reached in. Touched me. Filled me. As if an invisible siphon leeched off the notes and chords with the urgency of needed breath. He slowed the piece, his long fingers curling and flattening on the ivory keys, his eyes closing, lashes pressed against his cheeks. The tune echoed off the empty walls with one final deep chord. When he opened his eyes, they locked on mine. His hands slid from the keys and into his lap. `There can't be anything between us.'" Eden, a senior at her high school, needs to take an elective. She signs up for Concert Choir, which has always been labeled as an "Easy A" class. She doesn't expect to even care about the class... Much less, truly enjoy it. However, when Mr. James Christian, the beautiful, young, new teacher, enters the room, Eden's heart stops. Concert Choir will certainly be more than she ever bargained for. Soon, Choir becomes her favorite class, and not because of all the beautiful music. A forbidden attraction springs up between Eden and her teacher, which they must repress. Eden, dealing with her distant father, terrible stepmother and the loss of her real mother ten years previously, has a lot going on in her life. She seeks solace through Mr. Christian when her school friends become less than helpful. After having experienced a more mature friendship with Mr. Christian, people that she used to hang out with (her ex-boyfriend, etc.), seem suddenly immature and uninteresting. He seems to understand her in an adult way that she has never experienced before. The dynamic between Eden and her teacher is very interesting. Little details display the subtle changes in their relationship throughout the novel. The reader will slowly watch her change how she addresses him... He goes from Mr. Christian to James Christian to James. Yet, although he is only four years older than Eden, there is still the teacher-student gap that cannot be bridged. A SEASON OF EDEN will have you wondering, hoping, and crossing your fingers, waiting for something to happen between the two. J.M. Warwick has written a book that can and will be enjoyed by all different kinds of teenagers.show more
