What Mrs N's Been Reading - Spanking Shakespeare

Just finished Jake Wizner's Spanking Shakespeare. Not a favorite of mine, but will probably be enjoyed by older teens. It's the story of Shakespeare Shapiro's (Yes, that is his real name. Explains a few of his issues in life.) senior year of high school, at the start of which, he vows to finally get a life, get a girlfriend, and get into a good college. As a senior project, all students at his school must submit a memoir of their life. Shakespeare looks both forward and back in his life as he works on the memoir, and along the way learns a bit about himself and his family, and helps a fellow student get past some horrible things in her life. Some mature content, so not for middle schoolers.
