You’ll laugh. You’ll cry. When is a high school not just a high school? My book called The High School is one of the books in the Molly McGuire mystery series. While working for the FBI, her team goes undercover in a small midwest town. She poses as a gym teacher and girl’s swim coach at the local high school. They soon discover that more than algebra classes are taking place in the old high school. The deeper the investigation goes, the more amazed they are about the depth of the corruption.
Ever wonder what went on in the principal’s office after most everyone went home? Why did the lights burn until after midnight? Did the principal really need a large sofa in his office? In your mind, go back to your high school days and remember. Were there times when it seemed that things were not quite right? Was there more going on than what appeared on the surface?
When you read this keep in mind that I have a tremendous imagination so even in high school I made up stories in my head about the faculty and administration of my high school. My stories were much more interesting than real life.
I hope you‘re laughing by now because if I recall most teenagers would not have even noticed, but I’m not saying it didn’t happen and possibly still does. Once upon a time I was a young attractive teacher and the propositions were numerous from all ages of men at my school. Even some remarks from the student’s fathers were not too subtle with their innuendos. I had no problem handling them and defusing the situations back then but some women might have.
Some of you may ask, ‘Why don’t they report this kind of harassment?’ You’re kidding right? Report to whom, when it’s the guy in charge doing it. Most young women like their job. I write this book because I have heard story after story as a therapist like some of these in the book. I’m hoping times have changed since my time.
Even though part of the theme of the book is serious, the humor in the story helps us to see how laughing can keep this darker side of human nature from destroying those who deal with it. Not all principals are like the one in the story nor does all charity come with a price, but we need to not forget that some does.
