From the acclaimed author of Lies We Tell Ourselves, Robin Talley, comes a Shakespeare-inspired story of revenge and redemption, where fair is foul, and foul is fair.

Maria Lyon and Lily Boiten are their school's ultimate power couple--but one thing stands between them and their perfect future: campus superstar Delilah Dufrey. Golden child Delilah is a legend at exclusive Acheron Academy, and the presumptive winner of the distinguished Cawdor Kingsley Prize. But Delilah doesn't know that Lily and Maria are willing to do anything--absolutely anything--to unseat Delilah for the scholarship. After all, it would lock in Maria's attendance at Stanford--and assure her and Lily four more years in a shared dorm room.

Together, Maria and Lily harness the dark power long rumored to be present on the former plantation that houses their school. But when feuds turn to fatalities, and madness begins to blur the distinction between what's real and what's imagined, the girls must attempt to put a stop to the chilling series of events they've accidentally set in motion.

there is nothing more that i love than a great Shakespeare retelling.

As I Descended is a retelling of Shakespeare's very famous 'Macbeth' that takes place in a very haunted boarding school in Virginia.

ghosts, mysteries, urban legends, and MURDER, this book was pretty hard to put down.

ALSO there was amazing GLBT and POC representation.

it was FANTASTIC.

if you love Shakespeare and if you love Macbeth, then definitely pick this up!
