This was witty and amusing with very strongly drawn characters - much better than I was expecting, and a good readthrough. ( )

Saw "The Rivals" in 5th grade with my best friend Matt and his parents at the tiny Park Square Theater in downtown Saint Paul, and loved it.

I bought this copy at the Killarney Bookshop on my honeymoon. (Yes, I got to go book-shopping on my honeymoon: what a lucky man!) ( )
