Prey - Lurlene McDaniel Given my mild obsession with strange and different lifestyles, I had to snag this book just to see what it was about. The basic summary is about a 30 something female teacher that hooks up with a 15 year old male student.I was surprised at how real this story was. It didn't sugarcoat the affair, and described it in a way that wasn't "over the top," but definitely didn't leave out the bedroom scenes either.What really struck a chord with me was the back and forth perspective between the teacher and the student. I felt as if I was in both the student's head and the teacher's head, and somehow they both managed to convince me that their reasons for engaging in the affair were valid (in their eyes).Stuck in the middle is the student's best friend, who is in love with him. She is instrumental in the story and without giving any details, it's probably obvious that she isn't going to sit on the sidelines forever.The ending was unreal. It almost reminded me of Mary Kay and Villi's story (one that made headline news several years back). There were no apologies, but real reflection. I liked that.
