The Substitute

The Girl on the Train meets We Need to Talk About Kevin in this finely crafted page-turner about a middle-school science teacher who innocently befriends one of his students. As the small community slowly turns against him, an anonymous narrator, a person of extreme intelligence and emotional detachment, offers insight into events past and present. A deliciously creepy thriller that will keep you guessing to the very last page, The Substitute is a finely crafted page-turner and a chilling look into the mind of a psychopath.
