The Abstinence Teacher by Tom Perrotta A
I really liked this book. The writing is outstanding and I felt a lot of mixed emotion in this tale of longing, religion and vulnerability.
Mixed emotions because I could never decide who I identified with most? The lonely single mother or the recovering addict who has accepted Jesus Christ as his everything.
Little Children and Election are two of my favorite films of all time (both Perrotta books), so I can't wait to dive into the rest of his work!
