Double, double, toil, and trouble! The quest for high-school royalty can turn deadly when teen ambition outstrips reason. Skye Kingston is a shy shutterbug who prefers observing life from behind her camera lens. She doesn't know she's stunning, and comes off the sidelines only when she's forced to by the terrifying events of one treacherous school year in Alaska. A boy named Duncan is dead, and his death may or may not be an accident. Skye's three new best friends are eerily able to foretell the future, and cheerleader Beth might be more than a social climber--she quite probably is a sociopath. Then there's Skye's growing attraction to the school hottie, Craig, The Boy Who Would Be Prom King. But their time is crossed by fate. There's already been one death, and who can say if it's only the first? As Skye falls for Craig, she also slowly realizes that he is caught in the crosshairs of a deadly plot. Can she save Craig and herself from a murderous fate? Exposure is not only a modern take on the classic Macbeth, it's proof that nothing has changed since Shakespeare riffed on the subject nearly half a millennium ago: the quest for power can lead to bloodstained hands.
"Exposure is an intelligent, poignant, and riveting mashup of Shakespearean tragedy and high-school politics, which, as it turns out, have a lot in common." ~Daria Snadowsky, author of Anatomy of a Boyfriend and Anatomy of a Single Girl
"Kim Askew and Amy Helmes write with a delightful assurance in this clever and thrilling second installment in their Twisted Lit series. Wherever he is, the Bard is smiling down on them." ~Andrea N. Richesin, editor of Crush: 26 Real-Life Tales of First Love
Rezension: 'Exposure' clicked with me right away. There's a lot to like in this novel...the events fell into place not by design, but as a series of choices, actions, and reactions that led naturally from each other. Equal parts teen drama and classic adaptation, I could definitely see this actually being a movie on par with '10 Things I Hate About You'.' --Drown My Books
'Death, betrayal, ruthless plots to seize the 'crown'--all the seeds of stage tragedy take root and flourish in this clever modern-day homage to Macbeth. High school is rife with just enough passion and treachery to set a suitable stage for some Shakespearean-level drama.' --'Kirkus Reviews'
'Askew and Helmes' adaptation adds a certain zest to the original play. Through well-paced writing, complicated romance, and a relatable protagonist, the reader has the ability to view a literary classic in a new and enjoyable way. I would recommend 'Exposure' to readers that are interested in modern adaptations of Shakespearean plays in the young adult age group.' --Blogcritics
'Once again, as with 'Tempestuous', I loved the story! This should be required reading for every high school student who has to read 'MacBeth'. I will recommend this book to students who enjoy fairy tales retold, romance novels, comedies, and tragedies.' --Whispering Pretty Stories
'I love the way that the authors used Shakespeare's characters differently and reinvented them. 'Exposure' is a great book that I hope teens will gravitate to. I thought 'Exposure' was an excellent version of 'Macbeth', and I think the title is perfect. If a book can discuss the never-ending issue of popularity in high school and involve the dramatic theme of Shakespeare, I say read on and enjoy.' --'I Blog, You Read' blog
