“Jaye's personal drama sets an engrossing stage... A dizzying new twist on one of the Bard's most famous plays.” - Kirkus
"Both moving and humorous... Shakespeare's characters really shine as they come to life in the twenty-first century."
- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
New York Times best seller The Books of Elsewhere, Jacqueline West’s award-winning fantasy series for young readers, is published by Dial in the USA and will also be published in Italy, Spain, Greece, Turkey, Indonesia, Sweden, Norway, France, Germany, Russia, China and Catalan. Her first YA novel, Dreamers Often Lie (Dial Books for Young Readers, April 2016), is a dark and twisty romance that braids Hamlet, Romeo and Juliet, and A Midsummer Night's Dream into a modern-day teen's life. Jacqueline's poetry has appeared in a variety of print and online publications and has garnered several awards, including a Dorothy Sargent Rosenberg prize and two Pushcart nominations. Cherma, her series of poems about Wisconsin’s Bohemian immigrants, was published in March 2010 by the University of Wisconsin’s Parallel Press chapbook series.
