Indecent Read Online Free - Shy, introverted Imogene Abney has always been fascinated by the elite world of prep schools, having secretly longed to attend one since she was a girl in Buffalo, New York. So, shortly after her college graduation, when she’s offered a teaching position at the Vandenberg School for Boys, an all-boys prep school in Westchester, New York, she immediately accepts, despite having little teaching experience—and very little experience with boys.
When Imogene meets handsome, popular Adam Kipling a few weeks into her tenure there, a student who exudes charm and status and ease, she's immediately drawn to him. Who is this boy who flirts with her without fear of being caught? Who is this boy who seems immune to consequences and worry; a boy for whom the world will always provide?
As an obsessive, illicit affair begins between them, Imogene is so lost in the haze of first love that she's unable to recognize the danger she's in. The danger of losing her job. The danger of losing herself in the wrong person. The danger of being caught doing something possibly illegal and so indecent.
Exploring issues of class, sex, and gender, this smart, sexy debut by Corinne Sullivan shatters the black-and- white nature of victimhood, taking a close look at blame and moral ambiguity.

The dilemma of the three-star review! Do I start with the things I liked and then move on to the things I didn't like, running the risk of ending the review on a sour note? Or do I start with what I disliked and then try to finish with the positives, running the risk that the initial negativity w...

The writing is beautiful...the subject matter not so much. Despite that, I cannot give this book less than 5 stars.

There are certain types of coming-of-age novel I struggle to get along with because the stories they tell feel so alien to me, and they sit at opposite ends of a scale. The first type is the girls-gone-wild excess of, for example, Girls on Fire and Wild Things, in which kids are veterans of org...

This book was completely unputdownable, and finally, finally broke my inability to read anything but nonfiction or romance.
Imogene's voice come alive, and the interiority captures all the insecurity, anxiety, and depression she feels. It's perfectly cringeworthy and felt so real.
The novel remin...
