He turns to his beautiful young teacher for support, and tumbles into a most forbidden love affair. Laugh out loud funny, and yet achingly poignant, the story of Weed's journey to defy convention and to defend his sense of justice will cause you to stand up and cheer for this charming, hilarious - and unlikely - hero.
have enjoyed it more if I had read it instead of listening. Unfortunately, this narrator read like an elementary student... very poor narration:(
The story produced a variety of emotions from being sorry for the main person to outright laughter. The character's wit was excellent. The narrator is easy to listen to and makes the character's personalities more interesting and adds more layers to their personality I think he makes listening to the story enjoyable.
