Publisher's Summary

An edgy, sexy USA Today best seller about falling for the one person you can't have.
Maise O'Malley just turned 18, but she's felt like a grown-up her entire life. The summer before senior year, she has plans: Get into a great film school, convince her mom to go into rehab, and absolutely do not, under any circumstances, screw up her own future.
But life has a way of throwing her plans into free-fall.
When Maise meets Evan at a carnival one night, their chemistry is immediate, intense, and short-lived. Which is exactly how she likes it: no strings. But afterward, she can't get Evan out of her head. He’s taught her that a hookup can be something more. It can be an unexpected connection with someone who truly understands her. Someone who sees beyond her bravado to the scared but strong girl inside.
That someone turns out to be her new film class teacher, Mr. Evan Wilke.
Maise and Evan resolve to keep their hands off each other, but the attraction is too much to bear. Together, they're real and genuine; apart, they’re just actors playing their parts for everyone else. And their masks are slipping. People start to notice. Rumors fly. When the truth comes to light in a shocking way, they may learn they were just playing parts for each other, too.
Smart, sexy, and provocative, Unteachable is about what happens when a love story goes off-script.

Hated it!!! Don't waste your time

Where do I begin. This book is about highschooler who falls in love with their teacher is not a good storyline. I have read books about teacher-student relationships in the past and liked them. this Is not like ilthem. The Book was hard for me to read I don't like the main character I don't like the main character love interest and I'm rooting for the underdog

Oh the Angst!

This is my first book by this author and I am obsessed. I do love a good student/teacher trope, so this was a no brainer for me and I couldn't have been happier with this pick.

Most books I read or listen to, have the happy beginning, the angsty middle and then the crescendo and then you are given a peak into their new happy life.

Unteachable was not this way. The reader is dragged through the mud, picked up and cleaned off, just to be dragged all over again all the way until the very last few words. Although you get your happy ending, it is a long and painful journey. Elliot Wake (formerly Leah Raeder) is a beautiful wordsmith, making me feel as though these characters were my friends and I knew them inside and out. I so desperately wanted them to be happy and more times than not... I had no idea what the happy outcome should be. I absolutely loved being completely consumed in this world.

Grace Grant is fantastic. She gives each character a voice (literally and figuratively) and her unique tone and timber makes me want to listen to her all day long.

Definitely worth a credit. Best book I've read/listened to all year.
