I am totally thrilled and excited and dancing around for Michelle Ray, whose YA novel, “Falling For Hamlet,” hits bookstores today. I am heading out later to buy it and I can’t wait to sit down and devour it, to see what she has done with this, the greatest achievement of English literature (hey, no pressure).
I have to admit, I have a personal interest in how she does, being the author of a Shakespeare adaptation myself. I want to see her book soar. I want to hear great reviews, I want to see it hit record sales numbers. I want parents buying it for their kids, I want kids passing it on to their friends.
I want Shakespeare to be awesome. Epic. Ninja.
I think he can do it.
I can’t wait to see what Michelle has done to help bring it about.
