Shakespeare Shapiro has always hated his name. His parents bestowed it on him as some kind of sick joke when he was born, and his life has gone downhill from there, one embarrassing incident after another. Entering his senior year of high school, Shakespeare has never had a girlfriend, his younger brother is cooler than he is, and his best friend’s favorite topic of conversation is his bowel movements.

But Shakespeare will have the last laugh. He is chronicling every mortifying detail in his memoir, the writing project each senior at Shakespeare’s high school must complete. He is doing it brilliantly. And, just maybe, a prize-winning memoir will bring him respect, admiration, and a girlfriend … or at least a prom date.

    " (A) Hilarious diary of a 17 year old teen. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Sarah Shoo | 2/4/2014

    " I think this might be my favorite book of 2010. It was hysterical! As I was reading it to my class, I couldn't stop laughing at points. But the book also has its serious moments, and really, throughout the novel, Shakespeare is taking a very evaluative look at himself. I have a student who "hates" to read, and he borrowed the book and finished it in a night. He is now on his second read of it. "

    " I thought that this book was very funny. I loved Shakespeare and his story. "
