I wanted the role of Juliet more than anything. I studied hard. I gave a great reading for it—even with Bobby checking me out the whole time. I deserved the part.
I didn't get it. So I decided to level the playing field, though I actually might have leveled the whole play. You see, since there aren't any Success in Getting to Be Juliet in Your High School Play spells, I thought I'd cast the next best—a Fame spell. Good idea, right?
Yeah. Instead of bringing me a little fame, it brought me someone a little famous. Shakespeare. Well, Edmund Shakespeare. William's younger brother.
Good thing he's sweet and enthusiastic about helping me with the play...and—ahem—maybe a little bit hot. But he's from the past. Way past. Cars amaze him—cars! And cell phones? Ugh.
Still, there's something about him that's making my eyes go star-crossed....
My Review:If a relative of Shakespeare landed in your room, what would you do? I doubt you'd kinda use him to get a part, unless you're very passionate about acting. Like Miranda does. And that's good, because Edmund is very passionate about acting, too. So they fit together. Anyways.
Loved them together, even though at the beginning, Edmund doesn't see it, and dallies with another girl. And then some issues come up, where things aren't how they are supposed to be, and that's a main part in the plot, so I'm going to stop talking about it, besides to say that it was sad.
Yeah, sad, bittersweet ending, But it was supposed to be that way. And then some people were happy. And it was good.
And how Edmund is with one character? Because they're so alike? If you've read the book, you know who I'm talking about, but if you haven't, I don't know if you'll guess who...and how they kept arguing, and then kinda getting along with each other at the end. Really liked that!
Loved this book, check it out! Now!!!!
