A high school English teacher dedicated to supporting her "at risk" students is forced to allow a by-the-book cop into her bend-the-rules classroom. In COP OF THE YEAR (4.5G), master storyteller Kathryn Shay pens an emotionally powerful tale that leaves you breathless. Woven into this riveting plot are wonderfully written characters that grab your heart and don't let go. Bravo Ms. Shay!

Cop of the Year

Submitted by Robin in PA on July 30, 2014 - 10:29pm.

Captain Mitch Lansing has just transferred to the Bayview Heights Police Department when he finds out one of his assignments is an Outreach Program that helps troubled kids at the local high school. Mitch is not happy about this since he has trouble relating to teenagers. Teacher Cassie Smith has trouble relating to cops. Her past run-ins with police as a teenager has left an impression...and it's not good. Now Mitch and Cassie are stuck together for ten weeks, clashing about their teaching styles and what is right for the children.

Kathryn Shay always writes a unique, thoughtful story. This book deals with delinquency, gangs, and families in need of help. It also deals with the Vietnam War and how those who fought in the war were affected by it. My rating: 4 Stars.
