"the tale of a good teacher who follows her moral compass and risks damnation. a decade long journey that culminates in a gripping john grisham like climax. a book club favourite, it's not surprising that movie producers are circling around the good teacher." - mark naglazas, The sunday times magazine
"An amazing debut novel for this author. It was a real page turner for me filled with angst and heartfelt emotion. Loved going on the journey of this dedicated teacher. Highly recommended." - Taryn devlin
‘Just finished reading PJ Kelly’s book The Good Teacher and I really enjoyed it. It is written in a similar vein to classic Jodie Picoult books where a social issue is questioned and challenged and those who work with vulnerable children in our communities will find it engaging. Great first novel for PJ Kelly.’
Maggie Dent, Author of Saving Our Children from Our Chaotic World
