The Kingdom of Childhood

“Your teachers know you had Madrigals tonight. They’ll let you slide on the homework.

And we can go without the condoms.”

“No, we can’t.”

“Yes, we can. I’ve been on the pill for weeks now, and neither of us is sleeping with

anybody else, so far as I know.”


*Head over to Darlyn & Books on 10/5 for the next installment from THE KINGDOM OF CHILDHOOD*


The Kingdom of Childhood is the story of a boy and a woman; sixteen-year-old Zach Patterson, uprooted and struggling to reconcile his knowledge of his mother’s extramarital affair, and Judy McFarland, a kindergarten teacher watching her family unravel before her eyes. Thrown together to organize a fundraiser for their failing private school and bonded by loneliness, they begin an affair that at first thrills, then corrupts each of them. Judy sees in Zachthe elements of a young man she loved as a child, but what Zach does not realize is that their relationship is, for Judy, only the latest in a lifetime of disturbing secrets.

Rebecca Coleman’s manuscript forThe Kingdom of Childhood was a semifinalist in the 2010 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Competition. An emotionally tense, increasingly chilling work of fiction set in the controversial Waldorf school community, it is equal parts enchanting and unsettling and is sure to be a much discussed and much-debated novel.

  5. Ooh, I want to read this so badly because I have a weird obsession with books where adults/teachers sleep with their students. It fascinates me for some reason. I was really worried when I first started teaching high school seniors at age 21 that I would find a student attractive, but once I actually started working with them… hell no! High school kids are a world away from college grads and the thought of anything happening with one is superbly creepy. Thanks for the giveaway!

  6. The cover is giving me a Hansel and Gretl vide, which I’m digging. I would love to have a chance at the giveaway!
