Synopsis

"An absolute riot! You don't have to be a Shakespeare fan to fall in love with these books. It's the best new young adult series of the year!" --Jack and Jill magazine

Banished by her school's popular crowd, former "it girl" Miranda Prospero has landed in a brave new world: holding dominion amongst geeks and misfits at the food court of a local mall. When a snowstorm lays siege to mall workers and shoppers alike, the beguiling heroine seeks revenge against the catty clique behind her social exile. In this spirited take on Shakespeare's The Tempest, Miranda uses charm, trickery, and her legion of dweeby cohorts to set things right, learning more in one night about her own heart and human nature than she ever did as high school royalty.

This modern version, though bearing the bones of the original story, can absolutely be read and enjoyed with no prior knowledge of its predecessor.
