Though I have been out of high school for many years, Pricilla Cummings made me feel like I was walking the halls again, and brought me into the minds of high school teens with timeless issues, yet in a timely manner. Peer pressures drive Melody's classmates to accuse her dad, the music teacher, of inappropriate touching. The events that lead up to the accusations result in repercussions, are told in two points of view making the book very thought-provoking read. As an avid reader, and mom of teens I delved right into this book, which pulls you in right from the start. Compelling contemporary issues make 'What Mr. Matter Did' a page turning read that I recommend to teens, and adults alike, along with Pricilla Cummings last book 'Red Kayak'.
