In this “layered and thoughtful contemporary novel,” (School Library Journal) an intense—and passionate—bond between a high school senior and her music teacher becomes a public scandal that threatens the reputation of both.

Bea has a secret.

Actually, she has more than one. There’s her dream for the future that she can’t tell anyone—not her father and not even her best friend, Plum.

And now there’s Dane Rossi. Dane is hot, he shares Bea’s love of piano, and he believes in her.

He’s also Bea’s teacher.

When their passion for music crosses into passion for each other, Bea finds herself falling completely for Dane. She’s never felt so wanted, so understood, so known to her core. But the risk of discovery carries unexpected surprises that could shake Bea entirely. Bea must piece together what is and isn’t true about Dane, herself, and the most intense relationship she’s ever experienced in this absorbing novel from Nancy Ohlin, the author of Beauty.

“Consent is as delicate, asprofound and as subtle as the music that gifted young pianist Beatrice plays inmoments of near-mystical inspiration. Nancy Ohlin tackles a very delicatesubject with so much wisdom, so much clear-eyed honesty, and such a deft touchthat I was blownaway. A quick read you can’t put down.”
