In-between book

Ophelia, by Lisa Klein, reimagines Ophelia's story in a YA novel. I liked the way it felt like I was reading Shakespeare without actualy reading Shakespeare -- the dialogue felt authentic and true to Hamlet without being forced. Interesting take on the character, and well-supported by the play itself.

Still working on The Birth House. Enjoyable, but has weird quirks (diary entries thrown in at the end of each chapter, for example) that feel gimmicky.
