The Total Tragedy of a Girl Named Hamlet - Erin Dionne I picked this book up after one of my girls, either the 4th or 7th grader, left it atop the settee in the foyer for almost two months. A cute concept with some endearing characters but the source of the protagonist's angst seemed quite silly. Her reaction to her "issue" was overblown and unbelievable, in a flash Hamlet went from an 8th grade girl with an interesting life to a whiny unlikeable drama queen. I pushed through the book for the infinitely more appealing Dezzie, Hamlet's friends and the typical mean girl antagonists. So much promise but really best left to the settee.
