Note "Inspired by the work of Tina Fey and William Shakespeare."
"A Pop Shakespeare Book"--Title page verso.
"Each book in this series gives a Shakespearean makeover to your favorite movie or television show, recreating each moment from the original as if the Bard of Avon had written it himself. The lines are composed in iambic pentameter, and the whole is structured into acts and scenes, complete with numbered lines and stage directions." -- Page [7], A note about the series.
Summary "Return to North Shore High in this totally fetching retelling of Tina Fey's 2004 film Mean Girls, written in the style of the Bard of Avon. This comedy of manners follows Cady Heron's journey from lowly homeschooled jungle freak to most popular girl at North Shore to social pariah. Peopled with queen bees, wannabes, misfits, and nerds, this Elizabethan makeover of a millennial tale proves that all that glitters is not gold; sometimes it's cold, hard Plastic"--Page 4 of cover.
