COMP CLOSED: ‘The Good Teacher’ by Petronella McGovern

A good teacher can change lives…

This week’s giveaway is from AWC alumna Petronella McGovern – author of 2019’s acclaimed thriller Six Minutes. (For an insight into how she turned her author dreams into reality, check out our case study on her.) Petronella’s latest book is called The Good Teacher – “an intriguing tale of our times about kindness and betrayal, and the danger of good deeds”. Here’s a quick synopsis:

Every evening, Allison watches her husband's new house, desperate to find some answers. Every morning, she puts on a brave face to teach kindergarten. She's a good teacher, everyone says so – this stalking is just a tiny crack in her usual self-control.

A late enrolment into her class brings little Gracie – sick and grieving. Allison takes the girl and her father, Luke, under her wing. She smothers Gracie with the love she can't give her own son. As others question her judgement and the police arrive at her door, Allison starts to wonder if she can trust herself.

When Gracie has a chance to go to America for treatment, Allison leads the school in a fundraising drive. But why is Luke so reluctant? Has Allison crossed a line? Who really has Gracie's best interests at heart?

How far will the good teacher go to save a life? And whose life will that be? 

We’ve all known good teachers in our lives – so to win yourself a copy of this new book, in 50 words or fewer simply give a shout out to a GOOD TEACHER that you know (or remember) and why they are (or were) so good! Our favourite three answers will WIN.

Entries close midday Monday 7 September 2020, Sydney/Melbourne time.
