Tempestuous: A Modern-Day Spin on Shakespeare's The Tempest

Tempestuous: A Modern-Day Spin on Shakespeare's The Tempest - Kim Askew, Amy Helmes Tempestuous is about a girl named Miranda who works at mall food court selling hot dogs. She is in this position due to her being caught in a SAT school scam and has to pay all the damage she has done. One day she, her coworkers, other mall employees, and some mall customers get snowed in and is trapped in the mall overnight. And that is when chaos begins.

I really REALLY love this book. I thought the main character was witty, spontaneous and rebellious. It's kind of funny that a lot of characters in the book misjudged Miranda thinking that she was selfish due to all the things she has done. But in reality she was just trying to follow her heart and I find her very relatable.

I also adored the romance between Miranda and Caleb in the book. The book is only about 220 pages so I was impressed on how well the relationship was so well developed.

The side characters Arial, Chad, Grady, etc. were also very well developed and each character was great in their own way.

I really love the events that happened, the characters and the setting. Everything was just perfect and well written. I can't wait to get my hands on the rest of the books that these authors has to offer.
