Double, double, toil and trouble. Sometimes, the quest for high school royalty can be deadly! In this emotionally-charged twist on Shakespeare’s Macbeth, a self-conscious shutterbug named Skye Kingston navigates a treacherous school year in Alaska fraught with unspoken secrets and tragic twists of fate. Along the way she encounters three strangely prophetic BFFs; one social-climbing, sociopathic cheerleader; and a heart-stopping hottie named Craig McKenzie: the man who would be Prom King. Can Skye save the boy she loves — and herself — before they get caught in the crosshairs?


***

This is a fun and modern twist on Shakespeare's MacBeth.  The characters are realistic and easy to relate to.  The authors create a setting that feels familiar while being creative and unique.  Exposure is part of the Twisted Lit series where each book stands alone so readers and jump right in!  It's well written and a great read!  I really enjoyed it!

4.5/5 stars
