Tracy Chevalier brings Shakespeares Othello--a harrowing drama of jealousy and revenge--to a 1970s era elementary school playground.

Arriving at his fifth school in as many years, diplomats son Osei Kokote knows he needs an ally if he is to survive his first day--so hes lucky to hit it off with Dee, the most popular girl in school. But one student cant stand to witness this budding relationship: Ian decides to destroy the friendship between the black boy and the golden girl. By the end of the day, the school and its key players--teachers and pupils alike--will never be the same again.

The tragedy of Othello is transposed to a 1970s suburban Washington schoolyard, where kids fall in and out of love with each other before lunchtime, and practice a casual racism picked up from their parents and teachers. Peeking over the shoulders of four 11 year olds--Osei, Dee, Ian, and his reluctant girlfriend Mimi--Tracy Chevaliers powerful drama of friends torn apart by jealousy, bullying, and betrayal will leave you reeling.
