    The sixth and final Cracked Classics, Crushing on a Capulet, is based on Romeo and Juliet. Devin and Frankie fall into Verona and try their best to give the tragedy a happy ending. As with all the Cracked Classics, this one is super fun and gives middle grade kids the chance to learn the story without having to dive right in to the difficult language of Shakespeare. My 11- and 13-year-old sons enjoyed it a lot (as did I). I highly recommend Crushing on a Capulet (and all the Cracked Classics; yo The sixth and final Cracked Classics, Crushing on a Capulet, is based on Romeo and Juliet.

    Bu kitapta karakterler diğer kitaplara göre farklı bir yol izlese de yine de bana aynıymış gibi geldi. Romeo & Juliet'i işleyişlerini falan beğensem de Klasiklere dahil olan ana karakterlerin buradaki varlıkları diğer kitaplardan daha mantıksız ilerledi bana göre. Yine de hoş bir kitaptı. Seri genel olarak iyiydi. İlk üç kitabı çok beğenmiştim. Diğer üç kitap ise "eh"ti. Ayrıca her kitapta ayrı bir cinsiyet karşamasının amacını da hala anlayamadım ki pek anlaşılabilir değil. Klasikleri daha az s Bu kitapta karakterler diğer kitaplara göre farklı bir yol izlese de yine de bana aynıymış gibi geldi.

    Certainly more interesting and humorous than Cliff's Notes, and the self-referential digs are hilarious.

    Just didn’t have the patience for this one at this time. But then Romeo and Juliet has never been a favorite of mine. DNF at about 25%. November 2019.
