In a room beneath all the stage, all of Shakespeare's dead teenage girls meet and discuss their stories from their perspectives acting as a kind of support group for one another.

From the beginning, you are hooked with the haunting prose of Shakespeare's leading ladies who were never really able to tell their own stories. Now together and able to give their perspectives on some of Shakespeare's classics, they discover more about themselves and empower each other through sharing their experiences of love and loss. Their shared trauma connects them making this a book a powerful testament to young female readers of what women can do when they support each other.

As a high school English teacher who has taught Shakespeare for many years, this is such a fresh and creative twist on the classics. This is a poetic and haunting illustration of shared experiences and traumas from the female perspective with an empowering message.
