All Hamlet Kennedy wants is to be a normal eighth grader. But with parents like hers - Shakespearean scholars who actually dress in Elizabethan regalia . . . in public! - it's not that easy. As if they weren't strange enough, her genius seven-year-old sister will be attending her middle school, and is named the new math tutor. Then, when the Shakespeare Project is announced, Hamlet reveals herself to be an amazing actress. Even though she wants to be average, Hamlet can no longer hide from the fact that she- like her family - is anything but ordinary.

“The Total Tragedy of a Girl named Hamlet” is not a very exciting book to me, and most likely not very good to realistic fiction lovers too. The book is about a girl who has a boy name and leaves an embarrassing life, and has trouble with her smart sister, Elizabethan-like parents, and popular girls. All the scenes are plain, such as the talk about smart siblings. I really like stories about something more exciting. If many people don’ t like it, I would suggest the author revise this version of “A Total Tragedy of a Girl named Hamlet.”

I really like the total tragedy of a girl name Hamlet it was really cool to know that Hamlet has a seven year old sister that is a genius and goes to 8th grade who is younger to be in 8th grade. I really like the part when Dezzie fights with Hamlet because Hamlet knows that Dezzie’s friends are just using her well I’m not to give you anymore hints because then you won’t read this book. I hope the person who is reading this like this book because I do.
