Biography

Molly Booth

Molly Booth is a total Shakespeare nerd. She grew up homeschooled in Massachusetts, and spent most of her time reading Tamora Pierce novels and pretending to be Redwall characters with her four siblings. In high school, she was a stage manager for three different community theatres, which almost killed her. She went to Bunker Hill Community College first, and then Marlboro College in Vermont, where she studied writing, literature, and Elizabethan history. While there, she wrote the first drafts of Saving Hamlet. Molly now lives in Massachusetts again, with her cat, dog, and one-eyed rat.

Bee and longtime counselor Ben have a will-they-or-won't-they romance that's complicated by events that happened-or didn't happen-last summer. Meanwhile, Hana is falling hard for the kind but insecure Claudia, putting them both in the crosshairs of resident troublemaker John, who spreads a vicious rumor that could tear them apart. As the counselors juggle their camp responsibilities with simmering drama that comes to a head at the Fourth of July sparkler party, they'll have to swallow their pride and find the courage to untangle the truth, whether it leads to heartbreak or happily ever after.

Emma couldn't be more excited to start tenth grade. Not only is she participating in the drama club's production of "Hamlet," but her crush is directing. But soon, everything goes haywire. Emma's suddenly promoted to stage manager, and the person who's been cast as the lead turns out to be a disaster. One night, Emma stays behind to think and distractedly falls through the stage's trapdoor...landing in the basement of the Globe Theatre. It's London, 1601, and with her awesome new pixie cut, everyone thinks Emma's a boy --- even Will Shakespeare. But once Emma starts traveling back and forth through time, things get really confusing. In which reality does she belong? And can she save two epically tragic productions of "Hamlet" before time runs out?
