The staff of St Margaret's Primary School are hanging by a thread. There's serious litigation pending the school is due for registration and a powerful parent named Janet Bellevue has a lot to say about everything. As teachers they're trying to remain professional as people they're fast unravelling. There's Tyson first year out of uni and nervous as hell Derek the Assistant Principal who's dropped the ball on administration Bev from the office who's confronting a serious diagnosis and Sally-Ann who's desperate for a child of her own. Thank goodness for kids like Lionel Merrick. Lionel is the student who steals your heart and makes the whole teaching gig worthwhile: he's cheerful likeable and helpful - and devoted to his little sister Lacey. But Lionel has a secret of his own. As his future slides from vulnerable to dangerous will someone from St Margaret's realise before it's too late? As secrets threaten to be exposed and working demands increase each staff member begins to lose sight of the things that matter most. A moving and compelling novel about teachers and their students by the acclaimed author of the bestselling books Teacher and Dear Parents.
