This uncomfortable yet light-hearted memoir in diary form is primarily a record of obsession.
Natasha is a love-sick lesbian teenager in an all-girls school in the eighties, juggling her Latin homework, Bible study, a crush on Elaine Paige, and her suppressed sexuality. How can she make sense of it all?
But more importantly ... tormented by unrequited love ... how can Natasha make Miss Williams love her back? Take a sneaky peek inside ...

About the Author
I LOVED my all-girls public school. Apart from mercilessly hounding Miss Williams, with whom I fell in love at first sight at the age of twelve, I was a model pupil. In my early twenties I swapped my Latin homework for drug-taking and squatting.
Having sported an 'I LOVE MISS WILLIAMS' tattoo on my left wrist for eleven years, I finally tired of the inane questions it encouraged and got a cover-up in 1999.
I'm a list-writing geek and a drummer. I play table tennis and make my own beer. I am not a stalker anymore.

Holme's Lesbian Crushes at School is a delightful diary/story of Natasha's fantasy about her school French teacher. She is a typical teenager who lurches through life trying to settle on her sexuality whilst being obsessed with her teacher. She takes us through her life at school wanting to see then avoid her obsession. Then we see her at uni trying to fit in. All through it all she has excellent marks for language. One hopes she doesn't fall off the pedestal.
