It's Not Shakespeare - Amy Lane As seen on Ed and Em's Reviews!2.5/5 Stars!This book was a bit confusing. There was a lot of unexplained Spanish, using it is fine, but an explanation is necessary. I took German in high school and now in college. The most I know how to say is "I want Taco Bell" and "Hello, friends." Everything else goes right over my head.Rafi, the main character's love interest, also called everyone's mom "moms." I'll admit, at first, I thought every one had two moms. It confused me a lot. And I didn't enjoy that part. I had trouble with most of what Rafi said, and his speech. He was the stereotypical Mexican. I wish he hadn't been. It annoyed me, too. I couldn't see anything in his relationship with James because they were on two different levels.James was annoyingly whiny. My advice to his character: If you don't like your life, change it. Complaining does nothing. It was obnoxious that he spent so much time complaining. He had a lot going for him, he was just too blind to see him. He didn't care to see it though, because he was broken hearted. This book definitely wasn't a classic by Shakespeare.It was a typical, cliche story. It wasn't my favorite, but it wasn't horrible.
