Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers.
Today, we're shining the book spotlight on the latest addition to the Twisted Lit family releasing THIS TUESDAY! For those not already in the know, the Twisted Lit series takes the work of the Bard and gives things a here-and-now makeover with pretty amazing results. That being said, this release re-imagines A MidSummer Night's Dream...a title I had to read back in 7th grade. Good times! So, if you would be so kind, gentle reader I bid thee to please join me as we shine the spotlight on today's book of choice...
Kim Askew & Amy Helmes
About the book...
Life isn't always fair, and no one knows that better than fifteen-year-old Puck. When she's unceremoniously booted from yet another foster home, this city kid lands at DreamRoads, a rehabilitation wilderness camp for juvies. Her fellow campers include a famous pop star with a diva attitude, a geeky, "fish out of water" math whiz, and a surly gang-banger with a chip on his shoulder. The program's steely director aims to break Puck, but she knows that every adult has a breaking point, too. Determined to defy this realm of agonizing nature hikes and soul-sucking psychobabble -- even if that means manipulating four lovestruck camp counselors and the director's dim-witted second-in-command -- Puck ultimately gets much more than she bargains for in this "wondrous strange" outdoor odyssey inspired by The Bard's most beguiling comedy.
