Long Story ShortLong Story Short by Serena Kaylor
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Well, this one was just a delight. The story focuses on Beatrice. Beatrice has been home schooled her whole life, and she dreams of breaking out of her shell and seeing the world. Unbeknownst to her parents, she's applied and been accepted into Oxford. Before her parents will let her go, they want to make sure she's ready. To this end, they send her off to a Shakespeare summer camp. With this camp, they provide her a list of "challenges" she needs to complete to prove she can handle life at Oxford. While an unusual premise, it was a fun layer of this story as Beatrice navigated love, friendship and acting. I love a relatable lead character, and Beatrice was so, so much that. This was just a cute, happy story that made me smile. Thanks to NetGalley for the look at this upcoming July 2022 release!
