All her world's a stage.
Beatrice Shakespeare Smith is not an actress, yet she lives in a theater.
She's not an orphan, but she has no parents.
She knows every part, but she has no lines of her own.
Welcome to the Theatre Illuminata, where the characters of every play ever written can be found behind the curtain. They were born to play their parts, and are bound to the Theatre by The Book--an ancient and magical tome of scripts. Bertie is not one of them, but they are her family--and she is about to lose them all and the only home she has ever known.
I know we're on a fairy kick, but really? Shakespeare and fairies together is a bookworm's dream come true. That cover is also utterly fantastic. We're waiting on this one with bated breath (Note: that is the correct spelling of bated). The Bard and his characters come to life, and that certainly can't be bad. Shakespeare said "All the world's a stage," which just means that everything is really a story, and this is one I don't want to miss.
