text Ç Unteachable Õ Leah Raeder Ed Which is exactly how she likes it no strings But afterward she can’t get Evan out of her head He’s taught her that a hookup can be something It can be an unexpected connection with someone who truly understands her Someone who sees beyond her bravado to the scared but strong girl insideThat someone turns out to be her new film class teacher Mr Evan WilkeMaise and Evan resolve to keep their hands off each What the Wheat Thins?I am shocked I tell you Shocked Why? Is it because this is a book with a lot of naughty language? No that's not it I cuss like a fucking dock workerBecause it's a book with a lot of sex?Hmm No I like sex Because it's a book with a lot of sex between an 18 year old girl and her 32 year old teacher?No that was actually kind of hot I'm shocked because this is a New Adult Romanceand it was good I liked it This is no small feat especially considering I tend to be rather difficult to please when it comes to romance particularly when that romance is coupled with a lot of emoriffic teen angst I was given a free e ARC copy of this book in return for an honest review and I was completely prepared to shred it I've not had good luck in the NA department in the past and even though I thought the synopsis sounded interesting I'm well aware of how misleading synopses can be In the case of this story the synopsis is indeed misleading but not in the way you'd think; the synopsis does not even come close to doing Ms Raeder's writing justice Lyrical prose happens to be a weakness of mine and from the outset I was drawn in by the unexpectedly beautiful images the prose inspired It was the kind of greenhouse August heat that feels positively Jurassic Everything was melting a little the liuid black sky the silver gel penned stars the neon lights bleeding color everywhereAt the end of summer everything swelled with life almost grotesue bloated and overripe The sky was so full and pregnant you could poke a hole in it and douse the world with paintThe city thrummed around me a live passionate thing full of hearts and hands and desires and all of it seemed to concentrate here in a collective defiance of gravityAutumn spread its golden disease through the woods Midas trailing his fingers over the treetops Dying things became extraordinarily beautiful at the very end The story begins at a carnival and the writing transports you there with aplomb I've read many books where descriptions fell flat where it felt like my eyes were being sexually assaulted by adjectives but not a single one of them did anything to conjure pictures in my mind That was not the case here While I enjoyed getting to know the characters so often these days writers think they can just introduce their approximations of interesting characters and a drama fueled plot and expect people to enjoy it Prose is far important than people give it credit for and it is this underestimation that causes a lot of books to be flat uninteresting and forgettable Something I don't often comment on are book covers I try to leave them out of the discussion because as a photographer I know that images are widely subjective Every image evokes different feelings in different people much the same as writing With that in mind I will say that I've not seen a good many book covers which I felt matched andor represented the writing therein This one however does The unmistakably fierce femininity the wild abandon of the hair that wispy uality and the eye catching color all help to portray the undeniably youthful yet powerful themes within the story As I was writing this it occurred to me that Ms Raeder wields words much the same way an artist wields colors How I thought to myself did the art designer capture the essence of Ms Raeder's writing so well? It was not surprising then to discover Ms Raeder designed the cover herselfI suppose I should get on with it huh?The story itself is actually pretty uniue though the individual parts that make up the story are not We have a young woman who's been abused and neglected who's had to grow up pretty uickly who feels the absence of her father and acknowledges it Pair her with a man who's not uite as grown up as others perhaps feel he should be who also comes from a broken home who carries his own demons and can't seem to uiet them and you've got a recipe for one of the interesting love stories I've read in a while Written by an obvious cinephile Unteachable immerses the reader in a near cinematic experience as Maise narrates her life as if it's a movie There are montages fast forwards flashbacks references to cast scene action etc and several film references Maise dreams of going to film school Evan teaches film theory and they uickly learn to communicate through the use of that shared interest Maise and Evan are different in a lot of ways yet so alike that it was hard to imagine them not being together They each deal with emotional upheaval in perhaps not so healthy ways and this draws them to each other Maise muses that she's not ignorant of the fact that what draws her and Evan together is a shared darkness a pain that only those who've suffered can see lurking behind the eyes of those likely afflicted There are moments when you're getting to know someone when you realize something deep and buried in you is deep and buried in them too It feels like meeting a stranger you've known your whole life What made this book so nice to read was that neither character dwelt on this sadness unnecessarily The reader is not subjected to lengthy fits of melancholia but is instead treated to the burgeoning effects love and understanding have on each character in turn Maise slowly disentangles herself from the cynicism and fear that have kept her repressed and Evan begins to heal as he's gifted the love of a young woman who adores him while also not allowing him to run roughshod over her Indeed the power balance was uite masterfully done with Maise and Evan alternately taking the reigns of their relationship and trying to steer the other in the right direction The give and take of these two characters was refreshing and I loved that they both cared but also made mistakes It's those mistakes that I loved the most because even though I wanted to scream at the two of them to be careful their actions were completely consistent with who they were; hurt lonely reckless and desperately trying to figure things out They both crave some comfort some semblance of solace and they find it in each other even when circumstances conspire to keep them separate and alone They don't make the best decisions but they make the only decisions they know how to make They are not perfect and I love them for thatI know a lot of people might be skeezed out by the age difference between Maise and Evan but having read a lot of stories based in the 18th and 19th centuries an 18 year old woman with a 32 year old man does not in the least bother me The fact that Evan is Maise's teacher could be a black mark merely due to the aforementioned power imbalance but like I said the power within their relationship shifts continually just as it should in any relationship Evan teaches Maise but Maise also teaches Evan and they both come out better for it in the end I loved this book for a lot of reasons I loved the prose of course and the setting and the pace I loved the story arcs and the humor I loved Maise's irreverent sarcastic view of the world I loved Evan's sweet but conflicted nature I loved how the two of them managed to build a relationship under stressful circumstances but were still willing to try and make it work despite all the obvious obstacles I'm a firm believer in soaking up happiness wherever you can find it and having read this book I'm convinced Ms Raeder feels the same Life is too short to worry about the what ifs I want to live in a world where people love with a bit reckless abandon without the constraints of a society hellbent on making emotions rational And that made my heart ache too the thought of how much happiness lay scattered across the universe unrealized in fragments waiting for the right twist of fate to bring it together I'll admit that about halfway through this wonderful story I became uite concerned about the ending wondering how Ms Raeder was going to balance the romance with the rather rational doubts about the fate of the relationship I saw the possibility of two endings; the unutterably heartbreaking separation or the sickeningly cheesy declarations of love and devotion Imagine my surprise then when the ending was neither No I'm not going to give it away You'll have to read it for yourself I certainly wasn't disappointed and I hope you won't be either You can call it love or you can call it freefall They're pretty much the same thing
