Mini Review: Teach Me by Amy Lynn Steele

This is another book which I found after searching for A season of Eden. However, I find it a little bit lacking compared to A Season of Edena. Well give it a try if you love student-teacher love books~

When she was eight, Allison Starr began spending her summers with her aunt in San Diego. Nearly ten years later she is focused on her last year of high school and which colleges to apply to, not the attractive surfer who keeps showing up at the little corner of beach where she reads. She has no interest in a romantic relationship, especially one that starts in the summer and would be long distance. Ali tries to ignore him, but finds the boy on the beach much more distracting than the words in her books. Cooper Perez has never surfed the same beach this many days in a row. He just can’t seem to change spots until he has the courage to talk to the girl who is always reading her books in the shade. When he finally approaches her he is overwhelmed with the instant attraction he feels for this beautiful and intelligent girl, even though she is three years younger. Cooper and Allison spend the rest of the summer together discovering their love of many things, including each other. Summer eventually comes to an end, but their love does not. Allison heads home to start her senior year, but an opportunity brings Cooper closer to Allison than either of them would have expected. Mr. Perez is the new English teacher at Allison’s high school.

Teach Me is a Young Adult book which is slightly swaying towards New Adult. It's a pretty appropriate book for younger teens which makes it an amazing read for me. As for the relationship between Allison and Cooper, I think their relationship was kinda nice, though a bit fast paced. The setting was pretty cool too and though their first meeting was a bit cliche, I still enjoyed it a lot.

4.5 Stars out of 10 Stars for me :)
