Annotation:
This spirited re-telling of the Shakespearean tale from the view point of the young, love-struck Ophelia is darkly romantic, and, of course, tragic.

Praise

"Ophelia the character is playful and bold; her banter with Hamlet is witty, and often their repartee features wordplay and double entendre that would have made the Bard happy...Teen readers who love long, detailed period pieces will adore this one." 11/01/2006
