Summary
Recently suspended for a so-called outburst, high school English teacher Anna Crawford is stewing over the injustice at home when she is shocked to see herself named on television as a suspect in a shooting at the school where she works. Though she is quickly exonerated, and the actual teenage murderer identified, her life is nevertheless held up for relentless scrutiny and judgment as this quiet town descends into media mania. This is a piercing feminist howl written in trenchant prose, a compulsively readable, darkly funny expose of the hypocrisy that ensues when illusions of peace are shattered
Summary
When high school teacher Anna Crawford is suspended just before a shooting at her school, she is horrified to see that she is considered a suspect, and even though she is exonerated, her moment in the public eye draws judgment and scrutiny, as the community lapses into familiar reactions
