Jenna is sweet sixteen, the age when a girl is supposed to find her prince.

Instead she finds Mr Anderson - intelligent, handsome, married Mr Anderson, who just happens to be her chemistry teacher. With a dark past and a difficult family, Jenna is just happy to have someone to protect her, to worry about her, to love her.

But should she be suspicious of Mr Anderson's reputation for helping 'damaged' students? Why is the most popular girl in school suddenly jealous of her? And where is Mr Anderson's wife?

This is a love story that breaks all the rules, but that won't stop it breaking your heart.
