All he wants is for his colleagues—and the endlessly meddlesome parents—to stay out of his way. If not, well, they’ll get what they deserve.
It’s really too bad that sometimes excellence can come at such a high cost.

READ MY BOOK REVIEW
𝗥𝗘𝗩𝗜𝗘𝗪 𝗦𝗡𝗔𝗣𝗦𝗛𝗢𝗧: Snarky thrillers? Who knew that could be a thing! Well, Samantha Downing has proved that is can be and this novel shows it! I honestly couldn’t put this one down!
For Your Own Good is a compulsively readable, sarcastic, intriguing, (sort of silly), twisted read! I devoured this book. I’m a huge fan of books that take place in private schools (and boarding schools) and the fact that this book has that AND was able to pull off adult themes made it that much better! If Joe Goldberg from YOU by Caroline Kepnes became a private school teacher, he would have been the main character for this book! Teddy is a homicidal maniac but such a delight! He is what makes this book the snarky and compelling read that it is, and I never wanted to stop reading! I will say though that I didn’t really care for the ending, but I think it’s the authors niche to end her books in this way (shocking but eye rolling). It’s a thing! You’ll understand if/when you read more than one her books!
Anyway, this is a book about a person who has taken it upon themselves to “clean up” the school. What this means is that using poison to kill the “bad apples” so to speak is how the school gets just a little cleaner… This is a diabolical story about a teacher who is MAD (in the crazy sort of way) and doesn’t tolerate insolence, privileged kids, or making things go away with bribery. He’ll do ANYTHING to keep these kinds in line because it’s For Their Own Good.
All in all, this is a solid read and I enjoyed it immensely. I loved the sarcastic tone (kind of reminds me of cark comedies), and the way everything falls into place. It’s a fun book, one with a darker edge to it, but compulsively readable all the same! I look forward to reading many more of the authors books in the future!
