As soon as their eyes meet, the spark is lit, and as their love blossoms, Simon starts scaling the scaffolding into the tower room for clandestine trysts. But when Dorothy, the school’s science teacher and Megan’s guardian, discovers the young couple’s affair, Megan’s sheltered world is shattered forever. “The exclusive boarding school setting is vividly evoked, and the old story has an enduring hold on us. Readers will be moved by the contemporary twists on the mythic themes.”-Booklist
