When the new teacher first arrives, Barbara immediately senses that this woman will be different from the rest of her staff-room colleagues. But Barbara is not the only one to feel that Sheba is special, and before too long Sheba is involved in an illicit affair with a pupil. Barbara finds the relationship abhorrent, of course, but she is the only adult in whom Sheba can properly confide. So when the liaison is found out and Sheba's life falls apart, Barbara is there...

Finished reading this one a couple of days ago. It’s a strangely compelling and atmospheric tale of obsessive friendship and taboo sexual addiction. Both sad and funny, being brilliantly observed, crafted and written. Barbara’s voice as the narrator is spot on; sinister and totally lacking in self-awareness.

Now reserved as a wishlist tag.
