Grade My Teacher

A Short Story

Tom Perrotta

St. Martin's Press

The public and private self-images of a high school math teacher uncomfortably collide when she has a coffee date with a student who has posted negative comments about her on grademyteacher.com

The story, set at and around small-town Gifford High School, explores favorite themes of Perrotta’s, who Time magazine called the “Steinbeck of surburbia.”


REVIEWS

Praise for Grade My Teacher

 "The Leftovers is, simply put, the best Twilight Zone episode you never saw.”
—Stephen King, New York Times Book Review

"His most mature, absorbing novel, one that confirms his development from a funnyman to a daring chronicler of our most profound anxieties and human desires."
—Washington Post on The Leftovers

"At once suspenseful, ruefully funny, and ultimately generous. What is Perrotta but an American Chekhov whose characters even at their most ridiculous seem blessed and enbled by a luminous human aura?" —New York Times Book Review on Little Children
 
"More powerful than any coming-of-age novel." —Washington Post on Bad Haircut
