Blurb (from Goodreads)
Cadence Miller is a good girl. She just happens to make one terrible mistake her junior year in high school which costs her ten months in juvenile detention. Now a senior, she’s lost everything: her best friend, the trust of her parents, driving privileges, Internet access. It’s a lonely existence.
But there is one bright spot: Mark Connelly, her very cute, very off-limits 28-year-old calculus teacher. She falls hard for him—a ridiculous schoolgirl crush headed nowhere. She can’t help it. He’s the only good thing at Crestview High. She doesn’t expect him to reciprocate her feelings. How inappropriate, right? But he does. And he shows her.
And that’s when her life goes from bad to good.
Alyshas Thoughts: Everyone had that point in their lives that they want something they are unable to have. In the book “Good” by S. Walden she shows the relationship between Mark and Cadence and the problems they have to face to be together. Cadence has some trouble from her past making her very lonely when meeting Mark. Mark is a few years older and knows this relationship may not work but can’t help the strong connection and pull towards Cadence. So he decides to pursue her. One problem, their feelings are inappropriate to say the least. But does that stop them from seeing if these emotions are the real thing? Mark and Cadence’s relationship shows the battle people will go through knowing something isn’t the best choice but are unable to survive the feelings of not trying anyway. Good shows the lengths two people in love are willing to go through to be together no matter the cost. Only thing is are they successful and at what cost? This book is a very interesting read, it makes you want to help Mark and Cadence fight for each other along with other emotions along the way.
S. Walden used to teach English before making the best decision of her life by becoming a full-time writer. She lives in Georgia with her very supportive husband who prefers physics textbooks over fiction and has a difficult time understanding why her characters must have personality flaws. She is wary of small children, so she has a Westie instead. Her dreams include raising chickens and owning and operating a beachside inn on the Gulf Coast (chickens included). When she’s not writing, she’s thinking about it.
