September 6 marks the one year anniversary of the release of Sydney Logan's debut novel, Lessons Learned. To celebrate, Sydney is offering the following:
The Blurb: A young girl needs to spread her wings, but a young woman needs roots. English teacher Sarah Bray never thought she’d return to Sycamore Falls, but a traumatic event at her inner-city school leaves her desperate for the sanctuary of home. By returning to her roots, an older and wiser Sarah hopes to deal with the demons of her present and confront the ghosts of her past. She discovers a kindred spirit in Lucas Miller, a teacher from New York with demons of his own. As the newest faculty members at Sycamore High School, they quickly become friends – bonding through Lucas’s culture shock and their mutual desire to build new lives. When they open their wounded hearts to each other, their friendship effortlessly evolves into romance. Their love is put to the test when Matt, the quarterback of the football team, shares his deepest secret with Sarah. When the conservative community finds out, Sarah and Lucas – along with the town of Sycamore Falls – are schooled in the lessons of acceptance, tolerance, and love.
9/5/12-Lessons Learned is a wonderful story about love and acceptance. Sydney Logan really knows how to explore a character and the links between them. I appreciate her courage to take a stand for others in the face of adversity, especially on this issue. Hopefully more people will come to understand how hurtful words are and change their attitudes. Thank you, Sydney Logan, for bringing this to us in such a wonderful package. I can't wait to read your next book!!
9/2/13-Lessons Learned a great book that takes on the controversial issue of gay rights and bullying. I use this book as an assignment in my Social Work classes because of this. To take on an issue like this in your debut novel is nothing short of amazing. Everyone should read this book for the wonderful writing and for a lesson in how teachers really do feel about their students. 5 out of 5!
