Beatriz and Ben don't see eye to eye on much, but they do agree on one thing: they can't stand each other. No way are they going to date again. Ever. But when Beatriz's cousin Hope starts at Messina Prep everything changes. Not only does she want to fix Beatriz's love life, but she also attracts the attention of Ben’s best friend Clay…and the two cruelest guys at school. Told from alternating points of view, Much Ado About Something lets Beatriz and Ben tell their sides of the story as they try to navigate love, sex, rumors, family and tragedy. Not necessarily in that order. MUCH ADO ABOUT SOMETHING is Michelle Ray's third Shakespeare-inspired novel. Her others are MAC/BETH and FALLING FOR HAMLET, which was the inspiration for the TV show THE ROYALS on E!
