A moving story, Trumble’s novel is, despite some controversial subjects, both poignant and pleasurable to read.

It’s a must for anyone who believes in real and true love that knows no boundaries of sex or age.
High School senior Robert Westfall’s life is falling apart everywhere — except in his calculus class. Math, and his teacher Andrew McNellis, are the only things that make him forget about all of his problems at home. As Andrew watches Robert deal with everything, he begins to consider the unthinkable — blurring the lines between student and teacher — and the two form a relationship that begins to change and deepen over time. But despite the risks, the two will stop at nothing to let their true love prevail. (KENSINGTON, Jan., 320 pp., $15.00)
