I have an exercise in which I have to correct mistakes in the sentences. One of them is : "Tom borrowed me a very interesting book last week." Is there any problem with "a very"? Because I have no idea what is wrong with this sentence. The "a very interesting" part is the only idea I have.

There isn't a problem with "a very interesting," but did you look at "borrowed me?" It looks like there might be a problem there. I don't think I can borrow me something.
