Synopsis

"Sentenced to Shakespeare" is a contemporary young adult novel set in suburban New Jersey.

The story revolves around Leah, a smart and sensitive 15-year-old girl who is pushed too far by a bully and snaps.

Arrested for assault and battery, Leah is sentenced to an unusual form of rehabilitation—she must take and complete a Shakespeare workshop or else risk incarceration.

Ostracized by her classmates, abandoned by her only friend, Leah finds comfort and solidarity with the other juvenile offenders in this same program, with one offering her something she's never experienced before—love.
