She soon finds that teaching is the least of her problems: there’s the horror of sharing an apartment with the demented art projects of her teaching colleague, Simon- avoiding the polished seductive techniques of yet another teacher, the sleazy but likeable Ari – who has an unusually colourful history- worry over the encroaching blindness that afflicts Beth, a warm-hearted lesbian artist who becomes her best friend- trying to tame the school’s ‘hell class’ of older students- accidentally creating an Easter ‘miracle’ at the local church when one of Simon’s art projects runs amok- and falling disastrously in love with the school’s young Greek gardener – a demi-god in dirty denims – before her truer, hidden feelings painfully emerge.Embarking on a series of increasingly madcap adventures, Jo eventually learns that excessive fantasizing can seriously impair mental acuity, and jeopardize your chances of ever finding genuine, selfless love.
