Just as life seems perfect, a scandal tears it apart.

When kind, charismatic new drama teacher, Mr Moore, arrives at school, Beth’s life starts to look up. She’s cast as the Nurse in Romeo and Juliet, and as she grows close to super-popular
Hannah (Juliet), Beth finally has the female friend she’s been yearning for.

Meanwhile it seems that all the girls – including Beth – are in love with Mr Moore. And when a scandal breaks, Beth must make a decision that can only have dire consequences for everyone involved

I wish I could say I liked you, Trust Games. What seemed like an interesting read, I wanted to see how the topic was handled, but it wasn't handled well. I think because it wasn't actually about the main player in the game, but more of her view on the sidelines that you didn't get to see the attraction. And that's what made it an uncomfortable read, and it has nothing to do with the subject at hand, but the characters. But I'll get to that in a minute. You can kind of guess what Trust Games is about by the synopsis, it's not a big leap. I haven't read many of a controversial relationship, but I recently read The Things You Kiss Goodbye, and it didn't bother me at all because it was done right.
