I am just re-reading all my JC, love em. and in a wierd way quite quite enjoyed Wicked, byt WTF with the underage sex scenes, boak

how the fuck did her editors not tell her off!

Yes I found all that a bit odd, plus the way the cheating headmaster was meant to be so inherently wonderful that his wife was able to forgive him - bit of Jilly moulding literature to imitate real life I thought because her DH had an affair.

This is the only JC I have read and must admit I found it a little boring, should I be put off of reading her other books?

She got the ages wrong, basically.

The failing school story meant that it had to be GCSEs, but that just makes them all too young.
