I don't think I can read any of thisI don't usually rate books I don't finish but I need to say things about this one I stopped for a variety of reasonsFirstly being a teacher this book and where it was going made me feel really uncomfortable and there was no way I could turn that teacher head off whilst reading it to be able to enjoy it Secondly I felt the girl came across as a lot younger than what she was supposed to be Don't get me wrong it's not that the voice was a bad one but I just didn't buy it She felt like one of my year 7s not my year 11s and it meant she wasn't believable for me Thirdly all the bullying stuff didn't sit right with me Don't get me wrong I am sympathetic to bullying and the toll it has but it again something with it felt forced and overdone So not the book for me I'm stopping at about 80 pages and leaving it there

Fifteen year old Lara finds her soulmate There’s just one problem – he’s her teacherLara's life has changed radically since her father lost his job As the eldest Lara tries to keep upbeat and the one outlet for all her problems is. When I spotted Me Mr J up on Netgalley I was intrigued We've all seen the news stories and read the articles about teachers and students who fall in love I mostly read them in disgust because ew But it's not very often you get the chance to read a fictional story that takes on such a taboo It's a hard one to decide to read because you're just not sure how this kind of novel will be received My absolute kudos go to Rachel McIntyre for writing such a topical difficult bound to create waves kind of novel for her debut That takes some large onesI was actually mightily impressed with the novel and seeing it through Lara's eyes I kind of wonder if student teacher relationships are as gross as made out I mean they ARE but when you read Lara's story you kind of wonder if what they had was love A lot of teacher student stories you read are all about grooming being groomed it's all the teacher's fault etc but Me Mr J left me not knowing which way was up Was what Lara and Mr J had wrong Right Completely screwed up I STILL DON'T KNOW I have literally no idea how I felt about Lara and Mr J's relationship because it just didn't seem like something that was black or white And we only see it from Lara's point of view I would literally kill for Ben's point of view now THAT would be an interesting read so it's hard to condone something that's the only bright spot in Lara's life But on the other hand that's what probably makes it worse ARGHAnother huge plot of the story was the bullying Lara suffers for what seems like no other reason at all than the colour of her hair If people are so small minded to bully someone for the colour of their hair they should be shot Lara was right you can't bully someone for the colour of their skin without repurcussions so why can you bully someone for their hair colour It made me want to sit in a ball and weep A lot of people know what it's like to be bullied me included and it's just the worst thing ever I mean secondary school is bad enough isn't it really without other kids making your life even worse It was just despicable What they do to Lara made me so angry and got me so worked up that I wanted to punch them all in their scummy faces It felt real and it just made me so sad that they had to pick on the girl who basically had no one to turn to and no way to make it stopIt's so tough to explain how Me Mr J made me feel It made me feel everything And it's so easy to see how Lara could so easily fall in love with Mr J because her life was just so pants Her parents are on the breadline she's bullied and picked on and harassed like no one's business and Mr J offered a bit of a haven At first I did wonder what Mr J would ever possibly see in Lara Not because of anything except that she was a very young fifteensixteen Her diary entries were so much fun to read and she was so snarky and amusing but they made her seem so much younger than she was But actually it was so easy to see what Mr J saw in Lara and so hard to remember that it was wrong and not allowed and there's a reason there are rules against stuff like that But did I want a happy ending anyway You bloody bet I did and I can't explain why It wasn't just because I love happy endings it was than that This novel is certainly going to have people talking and that's the best kind of book It left me with a lot to think about and I really really want Mr J's side of the story Pretty pleaseLeah Loves

Me and Mr JAcher Mr Jagger The one person who takes Lara seriously and notices her potential The one person who is kind to her The one person who she falls madly and hopelessly in love with The one person who cannot reciprocate her feelings can he. So I hate Teacher Student relationships in books and tv shows so I was a bit sceptical going into this and some parts of this book were really well done and reminded me a tiny bit of Stolen by Lucy Christopher others were really weird and I disliked them a lot
