favourites, and now Ian Doescher author of the Shakespearean Star Wars books has made it his own and Shakespearised it If you haven t seen Mean Girls I m shocked that I m still meeting people who haven t seen it then here s the storyCady Heron, our heroine, moves from Africa where her parents were research zoologists to North Shore High where she has no understanding of life as an American teenager After struggling to find her place in the school s hierarchy she s eventually befriended by outcasts Janis and Damien who warn her to fear The Plastics three girls at the absolute top of the popularity food chain When by chance Cady is invited to have lunch with The Plastics she s encouraged by Janis to infiltrate their elite group What ensues is drama, political intrigue and a case of star crossed lovers, absolutely everything William Shakespeare himself was a huge advocate for.This book was hilarious, told in Elizabethan Shakespearean English with a blend of Tudor culture with 2000 s technology for here we have 16th 17th century Ladies and Sirs all using phones and going to the mall.Bar the language, there are very few differences between this Shakespearean tragedy and the original movie but it was great fun to see how the wealth of super quotable one liners that Mean Girls boasts becomes Shakespearised some are perhaps even quotable than the their modern counterparts.If you re looking for a quirky gift for a Mean Girls fan or if you fancy putting on the play then you must pick this book up Super fun and easily readable in an hour or so.Thank you to

learning the basics of Shakespearean literature How do you get them to understand the idea of iambic pentameter, or get them introduced to the way that Shakespearean language sounds, or how it looks on the page Well, if you re Ian Doescher, you take classic films and rewrite them into plays that read exactly as they would if the Bard himself had written them.Many students actively resist the idea of studying Shakespeare They think that his plays are boring, and difficult to understand They don t see the point I believe that at least a part of this stems from the fact that they don t know HOW to read Shakespeare Doescher s books can help to rectify that By telling stories that students are already familiar with in Shakespeare s style, these books can provide a gateway into the way that Shakespearean literature is written That in turn can make it easier for students to understand Shakespeare s actual plays Highly recommend that any teen and any school librarian keep a copy of both the books in Doescher s William Shakespeare s Star Wars series, as well as this book and future books that he may write in this series on hand I think that they may prove themselves useful as not only a form of entertainment, but also as a teaching aide.Reader I am not a fan of Mean Girls Never have been, probably never will be, frequent humming of I d Rather Be Me from the Mean girls musical notwithstanding I just have never been all that in to Teen High School movies I knew that going in However, I am a HUGE fan of Ian Doescher s Willam Shakespeare s Star Wars series as well as his delightful Shakespearean retelling of A Christmas Carol I also knew that going in So the question became, could Doescher transform a story I d never really cared for into a book that I enjoyed reading The answer is yes Mostly Oh, I still don t love the plot And much like his Star Wars series, there is tendency to rely slightly too heavily on Shakespeare references and jokes Those jokes can way the text down slightly, as they require the reader to have a decent level of familiarity with Shakespeare s plays If the reader doesn t have that familiarity, much if the humor could be lost Still, it s a good book, if slightly uneven feeling I don t love it, but I did enjoy it And I suppose that s good enough.Reading Challenge 52 Weeks Week 5 A Play flag Like see review Dec 06, 2018 Meghan rated it it
