Can't wait to see how that develops.Instead, we get teen drama, breaking a mall (yes they do considerable...

I thought the storyline was OK. I was confused a lot of the time. I couldn't keep up with all the characters. The ending was sweet, and I liked the relationship between Miranda and Caleb.Full review: http://kitkat1242.blogspot.co.uk/2013/02/review-tempestuous-by-kim-askew-amy.html

This review and more at Sab The Book EaterI'm not a big Shakespeare fan because I never really took the time to understand his writing. In highschool, and even now in college, we didn't really discuss Shakespeare in depth. We were only able to discuss a few of Shakespeare's works, unfortunately The ...
