2. “Romeo and Juliet” by William Shakespeare

text, font, universe, space, brand,

Not really a book, but still worth a read. To the high schooler, this story is all star-crossed lovers, dramatic family situations, and sword fights. To the adult reader, the story is ridiculous. Talk about “roll-your-eyes-heave-a-sigh” teenage angst!

You want to kill yourself because you can’t have the boy or girl you love? ! Get over it. Use your adult perspective to spend some time examining the adult characters in the show: the Capulets, the Nurse, and the Priest. They’re far more interesting than all the hormone-driven teens. Also, once you get past the language barrier, Shakespeare is pretty hilarious!
