Six teenagers’ lives intertwine during one thrilling summer full of romantic misunderstandings and dangerous deals in this sparkling retelling of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing.
After she gets kicked out of boarding school, seventeen-year-old Beatrice goes to her uncle’s estate on Long Island. But Hey Nonny Nonny is more than just a rundown old mansion. Beatrice’s cousin, Hero, runs a struggling speakeasy out of the basement—one that might not survive the summer. Along with Prince, a poor young man determined to prove his worth; his brother John, a dark and dangerous agent of the local mob; Benedick, a handsome trust-fund kid trying to become a writer; and Maggie, a beautiful and talented singer; Beatrice and Hero throw all their efforts into planning a massive party to save the speakeasy. Despite all their worries, the summer is beautiful, love is in the air, and Beatrice and Benedick are caught up in a romantic battle of wits that their friends might be quietly orchestrating in the background.
Hilariously clever and utterly charming, McKelle George’s debut novel is full of intrigue and 1920s charm. For fans of Jenny Han, Stephanie Perkins, and Anna Godbersen.
Okay, someone please tell me I’m not the only one alone in loving this cover. It’s so dreamy and just look at how elegant it looks! That pink/purple background! The silhouette! The art! MY HEART. Sheesh, and not only that BUT the book sounds amazing! I’m not familiar with the Shakespeare book it’s retelling, but I’m sure this will be nothing than amazing. I have a looove for reading books with boarding schools. I am also a sucker for romance and I can’t wait to see how all these characters’ lives intertwine!
Anyone else have this gorgeous book on their radar as well? 🙂
