Book Description

Miss Katherine Spicer started her first day at Coldfield Comprehensive School, confident, enthusiastic and very well qualified; that was until she met the eyes of the student hidden in the corner of her classroom. Kat’s final weekend of freedom was about to turn her life upside down and threaten everything she had been working for; how was she to know those mesmerising green eyes would reappear here?

Great lesbian chick lit.

A cross between Notes on a Scandal by Zoe Heller and Sugar Rush by Julie Burchill.

But She Is My Student follows the journey of Miss Katherine Spicer in her first year of teaching at Coldfield Comprehensive School. She is a gorgeous, intelligent young woman hailed as a fantastic teacher whose two best friends have to keep her spirit alive when she is faced with an impossible situation. How was she to know the woman she kissed would turn up in her A-Level History class?

The novel deals with the many issues of sexuality in a gripping, yet funny manner, pulling the reader back into a world of teenage nostalgia and school day memories.

Great lesbian chick lit.

But She Is My Student will make you laugh out loud and have you crying out for the fairytale ending.

A really fantastic lesbian novel that will also appeal to the avid chick lit reader.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very poorly written December 23, 2012
By Elena
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I thought to give this book a try because the theme seemed to have potential, *and* because I saw so many 5 star reviews. Perhaps the rave reviews are on account of the story, I definitely hope they aren't on account of the writing.

At first I thought that some pages may have gone unedited, as I couldn't quite believe that that could be the general style of the book. Well, I was sadly mistaken, it WAS that bad all from beginning to end. The writing left me feeling like I'd been joked out of my money. POVs are inconsistent, there are typos and very strange ends of sentences, non segues... Personally I found the writing so poor, so obviously, glaringly subpar that I couldn't really get past that to pay much attention to the plot at all.

I can't begrudge those who enjoyed the book and rated it 5 stars, to each their own. But at least I thought to contribute my opinion so that there is a bit of balance on the reviews. My reason for doing so is that I tend to 'trust' or at least pay attention to the ratings of a book to buy it or not, and I think that's more or less common practice for customers here at Amazon, so it doesn't feel right that a book of such poor quality writing is rated so high.

Incidentally, in the last few months this seems to be a more and more frequent occurrence - cheaper books (which I presume to be from *unedited* indies??) with many rave reviews that turn out to be royal disasters. In my opinion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant debut romance June 1, 2012
By Telstar
Format:Kindle Edition
Newly qualified teacher, Miss Katherine Spicer got quite a shock on her first day of teaching in her new school. Sitting hidden in the corner is Freya Elton. Freya is the woman Kat met at a gay bar over the weekend. Freya is the woman Kat kissed heatedly. Freya is the woman that just disappeared. Now here she is, as large as life sitting in Kat's class. Freya is Kat's student. Will Kat's career be over before it's even begun?

Freya Elton is a student in her final year at school. Freya is confused about her sexuality. However, she's not confused about her feelings for Kat. Just that one evening and the kisses they both shared has been playing on Freya's mind ever since.

In spite of how Kat feels, she knows she must push Freya away. Forget the kisses they shared that are seared into her brain. Although both Kat and Freya know they can't take things any further, it doesn't dampen their feelings for each other. But Kat can't and won't allow anything to interfere with her career. If only Kat would give Freya a small sign that she is interested, Freya would wait for ever. But Kat shows complete indifference. Will Freya win Kat over?

I came across this book quite by chance. I decided to buy the book on impulse. I'm delighted that I did.

This book is really well written, the storyline is both serious and humorous. Kiki Archer has taken a subject that could be potentially explosive. The teacher/student scenario. Kiki has handled this topic in a really excellent way. Although at the beginning I was rooting for Kat and Freya to be together, I had hoped that that the teacher/student code of conduct would not be breached, leaving the story compromised. I needn't have worried though.

3.0 out of 5 stars But she is my student.... August 6, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was my first girl x girl realtionship book. It was also a student-teacher romance so I was really anticipating to read this. In my opinion, to say it is a student-teacher romance isn't really true because there wasn't any realtionship while they were in school, they only avoided each other and tried to supress their feelings until the end when Freya finished school and they conffessed their feelings to each other.
This book was an okay read because there were a few things which ruined my enjoyment of the book. One of them was the writing style. there were some parts which, in my opinion, were taken from some third degree soap opera show. In those parts I could see an invisible title that told me "this is the part where you are supposed to cry" or "this is an emotional part, your heart supposed to swoon right now". The other thing is how the bad characters were portrayed like typical bad characters: ugly looking, always looking how to ruin the main hero's day, always going for some stupid plan to ruin their career and good name etc. The third thing is what I mentioned above about the non existent student-teacher romance which is a theme that I really like and was a little dissapionted when I discovered this wasn't really a theme in the book only the morality of starting a realthionship like this.
In the end, I will recommended this book beacause overoll it was very interesting read.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Read January 16, 2013

This was entertaining but a little lacking in the prose. The build to sexual tension was never achieved but overall the book was a decent read.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good book that could have been better May 28, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The premise was great: a teachers "fling" before the school year comes back to haunt her. I greatly enjoyed the characters in this novel. The main character's friends were a hoot and the building tension between the love interests was nice. However, near the end of the book, the story started to unravel a bit and lacked flow. It was almost like the author got in a hurry to finish the book. For the price though, I would recommend it.
