This book was so funny and sweet and it was so totally my type of book.
The book follows stars of a teen sitcom Charlie(Jenna) and Fielding/Aaron(Jonah). The show is in trouble and the romance is exposed as a fake. The two characters end up staring in a production of Much Ado About Nothing at Oregon Shakespeare Festival. Charlie loves this play and it has been her dream to play Beatrice forever but she isn't sure she can act on stage or only on her tv sitcom.
Here is what I loved about this book.
- Much Ado About Nothing- The theater I work at is doing this show in the fall. I imagine that there will be many school groups coming to see the show. I think this would be a fun read for anyone who has a performance of Much Ado About Nothing in their future.
-Shakespeare- Shakespeare is all about mistaken identities and masks and disguises. This book is very true to that as the characters find out who they are in the layers of all the parts they play.
-Oregon Shakespeare Festival- I've had friends work here. I kept asking one of my coworkers if things were true. Do they really have dessert at midnight on Wednesdays and Sundays? Do you really live in a rustic little cabin?
-Theater- I love books about theater.
