The Art Teacher - Paul Read

Love it!

Patrick Owen managed seven years at Highfields Secondary School without punching a pupil in the face. Unknowingly drawn into a war against his own pupils, Patrick's patience finally snaps as he finds himself the number one target with the boy the school just can't seem to expel. When one of his art students needs his help, she unwittingly pulls Patrick further into the line of fire, altering their lives forever. With the media circling and rumors of his involvement reaching new highs, Patrick must escape the world he lives in, or face the consequences

My thoughts and opinion:
Patrick Owen is an art teacher at a secondary school. He's in his thirties and lives separated from his wife Ana and three year old son Danny.

As soon as the new year starts, Patrick could directly see that some people in his class are trouble makers. Some don't listen to him at all and some don't show the respect he deserves as a teacher / authority. The worst pupil is Denis. He walks in with his phone and threatens to hurt Patrick if he won't get it back.

After a while, Denis is found dead and everything is tracing towards Patrick, even though he has an alibi. 

That book was so fascinating and I was totally rooting for Patrick. And the plot twist was absolutely brillant!!

Thank you so much Legend Press for sending me this book <3
