Wright, Brett YOLO Juliet (OMG Shakespeare), 95 pages. Random House, 2015. $10.
Romeo and Juliet meet again, but this time they have text messaging at their fingertips. That won’t change the outcome of their story, however. Wright does a brilliant job of interpreting the gist of the story into text messages and emoticons. I didn’t realize this until later, but there is a glossary in the back. Several of the abbreviations include “f’”, but the word itself is never used anywhere. I love these interpretations of Shakespeare!
