A Backward Glance
by Gill Oliver
Mr Harper hasn’t much time for rules. Overwhelming grief for the death of his wife is tainted by guilt and jealousy, and this easy-going, clever teacher is losing it. Enter Wendy Mundy, a feisty seventeen year old who knows about loss. An innocent relationship in a world that expects the worst. When the school Classics trip visits a volcanic region, deep truths will rise to the surface.
