Book Review--The Shakespeare Stealer

The Shakespeare Stealer
Book by Gary Blackwood
Review by Storyteller
Name: The Shakespeare Stealer
Author: Gary Blackwood
Category: historical fiction
Bad points: The main character, Widge, does lie--like a lot. But it's not because he's a horrible kid, more like he didn't have the greatest of upbringings. Usually I don't like books about boys, but this one was awesome and got my attention right at the beginning.
Good points: It was very historical and gave you that feel of actually being real and not just something that someone came up with. It was totally awesome, and REALLY interesting. I wasn't bored once! I could barely put this book down! (Yes, this is me speaking. The person who got bored with Alex Rider. =P)
Overall review: Widge is an orphan that lives with a horrible doctor named Dr. Bright in Shakespearian England. He is then "employed" by a man named Mr. Bass to go and steal the script of Hamlet from Shakespeare's theater group in London. But when Widge goes, he finally finds a place where he really belongs. Will he take the script and return it to Mr. Bass, or will he remain in William Shakespeare's theater group, the Lord Chamberlain's Men?
Overall rating: I would give this book...
(lol I always do books that I love.... ;D)

Yes, it was AMAZING!! So go and get it!! :)
