Othello (Shakespeare for Everyone Else #2)
by C.E. Wilson
Date of Publication: December 23, 2013
Shakespeare's work features some of the most memorable stories and characters ever created, yet for too many curious readers the combination of ultra-dense dialogue and unfamiliar historical settings make tackling the Bard's work something between a tedious chore and a confusing mess of bird-bolts and quondam carpet-mongers.
While it's nearly impossible to replicate or improve on these works, it is (thanks to their timeless nature) possible to make them more accessible to a wider audience.
In this Young Adult retelling of one of William Shakespeare's most memorable plays, join C.E. Wilson as she breathes new life into Othello, the second book in her series Shakespeare for Everyone Else.
When Archer decides that he's had enough of Orion and Devony running what he thought was going to be his school he takes desperate measures to ruin everything. Through lies and betrayal, deceit and deception, Archer will stop at nothing to get what he wants, and he doesn't care whose lives he has to destroy in the process.
Can anyone stop one of William Shakespeare's most villainous characters in this YA retelling of the epic tragedy of Othello?
“Orion, I’d like to think that we’re friends now. We’re friends, right?”
“Of course. You helped me out when Micah was drunk and making an absolute ass out of himself. You’ve proven on more than one occasion that I can trust you with school events and I know you care about the school’s reputation as much as I do. Please…tell me what you think you saw.”
“Micah’s a good guy. I think I’m looking too much into things.”
“Tell me what you’re thinking.”
“I don’t see a reason to get you riled up this close to the tournament.”
“Why would I get riled up?”
“Because you’re stressed. I’m worried you’ll start to see things that aren’t there. There’s going to be a lot of pressure. The media’s going to be here.”
“I know about the damn tournament. What I want to know is if Micah is trustworthy.”
As he fumbled with his fingers, Archer could feel Orion’s heavy gaze. “I don’t think you have anything to worry about.”
