"Saying 'I notice you're a nerd' is like saying, 'Hey, I notice that you'd rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you'd rather be thoughtful than be vapid, that you believe that there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Lindsay Lohan. Why is that?' In fact, it seems to me that most contemporary insults are pretty lame. Even 'lame' is kind of lame. Saying 'You're lame' is like saying 'You walk with a limp.' Yeah, whatever, so does 50 Cent, and he's done all right for himself."— John Green

         As we walk, I roll the sleeves of my gown to my elbows, the soft linen creasing easily in the crook of my arm.  Then I unlace the cording at the neckline of my dress–one firm tug and my shoulders are bared!
         "Roz, that is scandalous!"
         "No more scandalous than this mischief we are about,"  I remind her.  "God's truth, it is so hot that I am a mere moment from removing my garters and hose!  These clothes are more constricting than the rules we ladies must abide!"

Romeo's Ex: Rosaline's Story is a book I discovered while making my reading list for my Books & Related Materials for Young Adults class.  It was one of the books listed under the Historical Fiction column that we could pick from for our list.  I'm excited to read it, because if you checked out my Top Ten Tuesday for this week, you'd know that I LOVE re-tellings/re-mixes of stories.  The fact that Lisa has re-told the tale of Romeo & Juliet from Rosaline's perspective makes me really excited to finish the book!
