Publisher's Summary

As a child, hers was a dark fairy tale set against a wonderland of sparkling white snow, with the warm glow of candlelit holy day lanterns keeping the shadows at bay. Back then, there was innocence. And now she’ll do anything to return.
The Kingdom of Childhood is the story of a boy and a woman: 16-year-old Zach Patterson, uprooted and struggling to reconcile his knowledge of his mother's extramarital affair, and Judy McFarland, a kindergarten teacher watching her family unravel before her eyes. Thrown together to organize a fundraiser for their failing private school and bonded by loneliness, they begin an affair that at first thrills, then corrupts each of them. Judy sees in Zach the elements of a young man she loved as a child, but what Zach does not realize is that their relationship is—for Judy—only the latest in a lifetime of disturbing secrets. As the walls close in, Zach finds himself needing to disentangle from premature adulthood. But the lines between adult and child have blurred, and life and sanity are unraveling faster and further than anyone could ever have imagined.

I wish a ***** would..........

Which scene was your favorite?

There were none.

Any additional comments?

I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone. It pissed me off so much. I have a 15 yo and I see how some women look at him when they think that I don't see em and I wish one of em would try it.
