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

Tempestuous: A Modern-Day Spin on Shakespeare's The Tempest - Kim Askew, Amy Helmes OVERALL IMPRESSION: This was a really cute and sweet story with a little adventure and mystery thrown in. There's not a whole lot to say about it. I enjoyed reading it, and was entertained throughout the entire story. Unfortunately, I haven't ever read Shakespeare's "The Tempest" so I can't compare this version to that, but hopefully one day I'll be able to add that to my reading pile.

CHARACTERS: I really liked the character of Ariel. She was cute and caring. She is someone I would love to be friends with. Caleb was an interesting character as well. I feel like I learned about each of the characters and their values as the story progressed.

COVER: The cover is okay. Pretty simple and it ties in with the story fairly well.
