Alan Gratz has done it again. Something Wicked, a modern version of Shakespeare's Macbeth is a treasure. This companion piece to Something Rotten (Hamlet) makes Shakespeare fun. This book has it all -- mystery, murder, romance, a cool hero, and a sense of humor. Gratz does a great job of drawing you into the story quickly, keeping you entertained, your curiosity peeked, and occasionally, making you laugh right out loud. Most importantly, Gratz doesn't expose the murderer until the right time.
