My Review: Loved reading these books! I've read both in school. Now those versions are long and can be hard to read/understand for some. 

I loved how each story was done. Each one was so much fun to read and easier to understand. Texting, emoji, pictures, hashtags. Pretty much all you need to talk to the typical teen out there today. And well it does wonders. I read it and even let one of my girls read and she was able to grasp the story and remember it well! 

If read either story, or going to read it in school, go out and pick up a copy! It will help you out and prob the best was to read a Shakespeare story!
