Synopses & Reviews
Cass McKay has been called stubborn, temperamental, difficult, and that word that rhymes with witch” more times than she cares to count. But thats all about to pay off. She has finally landed the role she was born to playKate, in The Taming of the Shrew
in the summer apprentice program of a renowned Shakespeare theater company in the forests of Vermont.
But Cass can barely lace up her corset before her troubles begin. Her leading man, Drew, is a complete troll, and hes going to ruin Casss summer. Even worse, Casss bunkmate Amy has somehow fallen head over heels for Drew. Cass cant let Amy throw herself at a total jerk, so she comes up with a genius plan to give Drew the personality makeover he so desperately needs: theyll tame Drew just as Petruchio tames Kate! But as Shakespeares classic plays out offstage, Cass finds it harder and harder to resist falling for Drew herself.
The best kind of entertainment, The Taming of the Drew is smart, funny, fresh, and original. Youre going to love this badass heroine and her friends. You might even end up liking Drew, too.
For the 12+ reader, this is an ideal book for the theater-loving teen or light romance readers. With solid messages about being a good friend, following your dreams, and learning to stick up for yourself, this book is more than just lightweight fluff--though the snarky voice of the main character is sure to draw readers in from the start.
