YOLO Juliet by Brett Wright - ESSENTIAL

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!
