The Abstinence Teacher

The Abstinence Teacher The Abstinence Teacher by Tom Perrotta
My review
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
The plot of this book didn’t really surprise me. You can pretty much see where it’s going most of the time. Where the book really shines is in the way Perrotta treats his characters. You might expect him to be biased one way or the other: toward the born-again Christian, or toward the agnostic sex-ed teacher. But he actually manages to treat both sides with respect, and portrays the characters as they probably would be in real life: they’re only human, after all.
Next up is Cool It: The Skeptical Environmentalist’s Guide to Global Warming by Bjorn Lomberg.
