A very enjoyable take on the Othello story, with the action moved to the school playground, Dee and Osei (O) are around thirteen, and puberty is rearing its heated head among their classmates. O is a newcomer and the only black pupil in the school, son of a Ghanaian diplomat posted to Washington DC. Dee is the girl who takes her new classmate under her wing, with unforeseen and ultimately tragic results. It is very clever transposition which works well and demonstrates the universal themes of the original play. Young Adults will enjoy reading this, but older adults will, too.
