Title: Spanking Shakespeare
Author: Jake Wizner
Publisher: Random House
Synopsis:(B&N)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. And 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.
My opinion: Wow this book had me laughing from begginning to end. I mean who would name their kid shakespeare? Anyways for me atleast this book made me feel like i was in the characters mind. We see some entries of shakespeares "memoir." some scenes will have you thinking did that seriously just happen. If you thought the real shakespeare could write wait to you read what this Shakespeare writes.We always want to see the underdog come out on top this is no different.5/5
