Ophelia by Lisa Klein
I found Lisa Klein’s Ophelia while picking over the Teen section of a Barnes & Noble. For whatever reason (probably the very nice cover), I wrote it down and it ended up on my list, from which it could not be revoked. On a lazy afternoon, picking through the Young Adult section at my local library, I found it and decided to take it home. Okay, I thought, A retelling of Hamlet from Ophelia’s perspective. How bad can it be?
